Isamu Noguchi is one of the most experimental artists of the 20th century. In his varied work he made sculptures from a great variety of materials such as stone, bronze, aluminium, plastic and ceramics. As well as works on paper, he designed stage sets, lamps, furniture and public squares. The extensive exhibition explores Noguchi as a citizen of the world, who moved between the USA, Japan and Europe and merged different cultural traditions and technologies in his incomparable body of work.
The exhibition is organised and curated by Zentrum Paul Klee (Bern), the Barbican (London) and Museum Ludwig (Cologne) in partnership with LaM – Lille Métropole Musée d'art moderne, d'art contemporain et d'art brut. The exhibition would not have been possible without the collaboration of The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, New York.
EXHIBITIONS: 23.9.22 – 8.1.23
