Artistic polymath Isamu Noguchi is widely regarded as one the great experimental pioneers of the 20th century, and is particularly known for his varied sculptures.
The exhibition follows the 60-year kaleidoscope career of an artist who dabbled in sculpture, architecture, dance and design. Noguchi was very much a global citizen, and he viewed his risk-taking artistic practice as a way of life, believing that sculpture acted as a force for our day-to-day existence. His large-scale sculptures created harmony between juxtaposing elements, such as humans and animals and nature and industry.
There are 150 works made out of varying materials on display, from stone, ceramics and wood, to aluminium. Plus, elaborate theatre set designs, playground models, lighting structures and furniture design demonstrate Noguchi’s eclectic approach to creating.
