3. Noguchi Talks with Leah Raintree 

Artist Leah Raintree discusses her photography series, Another Land, in an Artist Talk at the Noguchi Museum followed by a visit to see the installation at Socrates Sculpture Park. The talk, "Another Land:  Noguchi and Imaging Space in the Anthropocene”, takes place on Saturday, November 7 from 1 to 2 p.m. Raintree's talk will consider the evolution of space-imaging technology alongside increased understanding of human impact on the earth and how these lines of inquiry influence artistic production. 

Another Land was created as part of Socrates Sculpture Park's 2015 Emerging Artist Fellowship (EAF) Exhibition. The series takes as its point of departure a 1968 sculpture of the same name by Isamu Noguchi and went on to examine the museum's collection and present Noguchi's sculpture in photographs as if they were distant celestial objects.

The Noguchi Museum is located at 9-01 33 Road, Long Island City NY 11106. Free with museum admission. www.noguchi.org.

5. Symposium on Dubuffett & Art Brut

A full-day symposium featuring international scholars exploring recent studies on Jean Dubuffet will be held on Monday, November 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the American Folk Art Museum. Topics include Dubuffet's art practice, relationships, artistic legacy, and provocative thinking, including art brut—a term that he coined, and an art form he collected extensively. The symposium is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Art Brut in America: The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet.

Click here to see the full program schedule and speaker information. Tickets are $55 for museum members, students and seniors or $65 for non-members.

Art Brut in America: The Incursion of Jean Dubuffet is the first major U.S. exhibition to explore the introduction of art brut to America. Including nearly 200 works collected by French artist Jean Dubuffet, the exhibition reflects on two seminal moments: the display of around 1,200 works from Dubuffet’s art brut collection at Alfonso Ossorios's East Hampton estate from 1952-62 and a speech delivered by Dubuffet, slightly prior to their installation, in December 1951, that challenged established ideas about art analysis and modes of creation.

The American Folk Art Museum is located at 2 Lincoln Square at Columbus Circle, (between 65th and 66th Street), New York, NY 10023.  www.folkartmuseum.org.
