(re)Generation: Three Artists, Three Cities
3pm Sunday 12 October 2008
9-01 33rd Road, Long Island City NY
This Sunday, 12 October, the Noguchi Museum in Queens will host (re)Generation: Three Artists, Three Cities, a panel discussion organized around the recent loss of the Museum's Ailanthus tree, the sole plant life original to the junkyard on which Isamu Noguchi founded the museum. Mitch Cope and Ingor Vetter, co-founders of the Tree of Heaven Woodshop were earlier this year asked by the Museum to mill and create objects from the wood of the Ailanthus, and will be present to partake in the panel discussion. Also taking part will be Paul Villinksi and Annie Murdoct who took part in Waste Not, Want Not, an exhibition at Socrates Sculpture Park where the solar-powered kiln used to mill the tree was housed. Curator Lilly Wei will moderate the panel.
