In honor of Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony, which will include a display of more than 300 of Sachs' handmade porcelain chawan (tea bowls), the Museum is showing a selection of Noguchi's more “functional” ceramics: plates, bowls, trays, and other traditional forms—along with other pieces that play with the notion of use value.

Long before it was widely accepted to do so, Noguchi ignored the traditional distinction between “art” and “design.” This exhibition focuses on the permeable membrane between these categories in Noguchi's work, with lightweight and flat-packable furniture, stage sets, sculpture, and Akari Light Sculptures.

Think of a circumstance in which rock and water rub up against each other: in a river gorge, along a coast, where a gutter empties onto a flagstone, or rain falls regularly on a travertine wall. At any given moment, rock is the sculptor and water is the material. Expand the timeline a bit, however, and the relationship reverses; water becomes the sculptor and rock the material. A creative awareness of this paradox, as refracted through a kaleidoscope of different cultural traditions, is The Noguchi Museum in a nutshell.
