The Noguchi Museum presents a retrospective exhibition of the sculptural work of Gonzalo Fonseca (1922–1997), a major figure in the development of modern Latin American art who created some of the most enchanting, idea-rich sculptures of his day. The exhibition encompasses some 80 objects, primarily works in stone dating from the mid-1960s to the 1990s, complemented by a selection of drawings and sketchbooks.

Each Spring, Pratt Institute's Interior Design Graduate Level Qualifying Design Studio course asks students to draw inspiration from Isamu Noguchi's work.

This year, students chose objects from the Museum's permanent collection on long-term view to research and incorporate into a hypothetical Noguchi Museum Annex in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn.

This exhibition explores Noguchi’s extraordinary decision—despite being exempt from internment as a resident of New York—to enter the Poston War Relocation Center, in the Arizona desert, hoping to contribute something positive to this forcibly displaced community, to which he had never felt more connected.
