The Results of an Artistic Friendship at Asian Art Museum

U.S.-born sculptor and designer Isamu Noguchi met Japanese painter, theorist and teacher Saburo Hasegawa in 1950, beginning a short yet fruitful friendship (Hasegawa died in 1957) committed to modernist practices, yet rooted in the traditions of Japan. Changing and Unchanging Things: Noguchi and Hasegawa in Postwar Japan displays the artists’ work side by side, tracing their influences on one another, and their mutual attempts to push modern art in new directions following the devastation of WWII. —Sarah Hotchkiss
