"Isamu Noguchi is one of the most important sculptors of all time. This is his story. Noguchi was a Japanese American artist who gave the world light. But the world was not so giving in return. Growing up mixed-race, born in the United States and raised in Japan, Noguchi found himself perceived as an outsider who did not belong in either country. Unable to identify fully as either Japanese or American, he turned to his art to shape, hold, and create light-to conquer the darkness without.
