Looking Up: The Skyviewing Sculptures Of Isamu Noguchi
The first major publication to take an in-depth look at the artist’s interest in outer space and charting our place in the universe. Noguchi made two major Skyviewing sculptures; one is central to the campus of Western Washington University, in Bellingham, WA. The 14-foot-high piece was created by invitation and installed in 1969. This extensively illustrated monograph explores Noguchi’s long career as a sculptor who works with environments, from his early days in the studio of Constantin Brâncusi into a context of younger generations of artists like Richard Serra and Nancy Holt.
