This program looks at two very different approaches to sculpture as they relate to "the modern". Noguchi, whose career is often (questionably) summarized as a Modernist synthesis of East and West, talks about his life and his work as it spanned across pressure points of global conflict and modern art itself-while Kienholz DIY aesthetic evokes a messy assemblage of modern life and Americana, often provocative, always haunting.
Noguchi: a sculptors world-1973. 28 minutes, Directed by Arnold Eagle
Sculptor Isamu Noguchi talks about his life and work as he is shown in different countries working on projects. Shows examples of his work including the Unesco Park in Paris, and his Billy Rose Gardens in Jerusalem. Presents photographs of his ballet set designs and fountains at the Osaka World Exposition.
Kienholz on Exhibit-1969. 21 minutes, Directed by June Steel
Studies the relationship between the sculptures of Edward Kienholz and the reactions of the viewers to them. The setting is the Los Angeles County Museum of Art where visitors are both fascinated and repulsed by Kienholz's work which barely escapes being banned as pornographic trash.
