But none the worse for it

  "Black and Blue, '' by isamu Noguchi, in the show  " Isamu Noguchi and the Borders of Sculpture,'' at the Portland Museum of Art, Oct. 5-Jan. 6.    The museum says the show:    "{I}nvestigates Noguchi’s expansive artistic practice by exploring his efforts to enlarge and challenge conventional notions of sculptural boundaries. Born in 1904, the Japanese-American modernist experimented endlessly with the intersection of objects, people, and space over the course of his 60-year career. Melding ideas and approaches to art from across the globe, Noguchi created traditional sculpture, landscape architecture, play structures, monuments, stage sets, interior designs, furniture, and more. This exhibition brings aspects of his varied production together, complicating notions of form and function and using the juxtaposition of materials, shapes, and techniques to encourage audiences to reimagine their sense of what sculpture can be.''
