Highlights from the Collection: Iconic Display

February 4, 2015 – September 13, 2015

As part of its ongoing series of installations from the collection, the Museum presents Iconic Display.

Whether we realize it or not, and whether we consent to it or not, the contexts in which we encounter art are irremovable frames. The excerpted installations are ones that have proven epochal in shaping the critical interpretation and public perception of specific bodies of Noguchis work–for better and for worse. They include Noguchis participation in Fourteen Americans at MoMA (1946); his first Japanese exhibition, which took place in a Tokyo department store (1950); an installation by the architect Arata Isozaki for the Seibu Museum of Art (1985); and contemporaneous attempts, through exhibitions and photographs, to make sense of one of his largest and least well-understood bodies of work–the 26 galvanized steel editions he made for Gemini G.E.L. in the early 1980s.
