There are few modern artists who can match the scope, size, and significance of Isamu Noguchi’s oeuvre. Working across mediums and movements, he bridged East and West, contemporary and traditional, in sculptures, ceramics, gardens, architecture, and set, furniture, and lighting designs. His massive public sculptures ring the globe, from Los Angeles to Jerusalem; his iconic designs for Herman Miller are still sold in stores; and all of his creations shape the spaces they inhabit with the purity and meaning of a Zen garden. “Everything is sculpture,” he once said. “Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture.”
As part of its yearlong 50th anniversary, the Japanese Garden’s exhibition will feature 22 pieces spanning Noguchi’s long career. It will be the only US exhibition of his art outside his Long Island City museum this year.
