A celebration of the Noguchi Museum, founded and designed by the influential Japanese-American sculptor and designer Isamu Noguchi
Considered to be one of Noguchi’s greatest works, it is the first and only museum in the U.S. to be designed by an artist with the express purpose of displaying his/her own work
Renowned photographers Tina Barney and Stephen Shore capture a unique and intimate portrait of the museum. Together, their photographs convey not only the contemporary moment of the museum, but also the essence of Noguchi’s aesthetic sensibility
An introductory essay by the museum director, Jenny Dixon, and a selection of historical images of the museum accompanied by brief texts, add context to the commissioned photography
The book’s publication coincides with the museum’s thirtieth anniversary, and it is the first book dedicated exclusively to the museum as an activated space
