In a lifetime that nearly coincided with the 20th century, William Segal (1904-2000) left a legacy of insight, compassion, and intelligence-as a business man and publisher, an artist, and as a seeker. A close friend of Isamu Noguchi, the two men shared a life at the forefront of intersecting avant-garde movements and in the unyielding pursuit of the ultimate self-understanding and awareness.

Drawing from the new memoir, A Voice at the Borders of Silence (Overlook Press, 2003), Marielle Bancou-Segal will explore the many dimensions of her late husband’s life. She will be joined by acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns, who will introduce In the Marketplace, the last film in a documentary trilogy on Segal’s life which Mr. Burns completed in 2000.

Followed by a reception.

Tickets: $10, Japan Society & The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum members & seniors $8, students $5.
