This summer's installation of highlights from the collection is organized around four instances in which Noguchi returned to an earlier body of work to rethink, redevelop, reproduce or restore it. The first example includes two groups of objects Noguchi made inspired by Constantin Brancusi in the 1930s, following his apprenticeship in Brancusi's studio, when he was still very much under the Romanian's influence and two decades later, in homage to his mentor, following Brancusi's death in 1957.

A newly-selected installment of the ongoing Highlights from the Collection series opens in June. This exhibition will feature key works from the Museum’s collection, including sculptures in stone, a selection documenting Noguchi’s experimentation with stainless steel and aluminum sculptures from the 1950s, as well as rarely shown pieces from the early 1940s incorporating string and wood elements.

Home to The Noguchi Museum and Socrates Sculpture Park, the Queens community where northern Long Island City and Astoria converge is a textured, mixed industrial and residential community.  A resident since 1960, Isamu Noguchi was joined in the neighborhood by fellow artist and sculptor Mark di Suvero ten years later.  Throughout his career, Isamu Noguchi collaborated with many architects, designers and civic thinkers on various public projects and in 1985, realized his vision of a single artist museum in Long Island City.
