Changing and Unchanging Things: Noguchi and Hasegawa in Postwar Japan focuses on the consequential friendship between Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) and Saburo Hasegawa (1906–1957). Until his early death, Hasegawa was among the most renowned contemporary Japanese artists in the U.S., and credited with introducing European abstraction to Japan in his role as an active art historian, critic, and art theorist.

Integrated into the Museum’s permanent installation, Palacios’s works bring renewed attention to Noguchi’s frequent experiments with the physical sciences, as well as with turning art-viewing into a physical experience.
