Isamu Noguchi at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
July 17, 2008 – May 4, 2009
The first major European exhibition of Isamu Noguchi’s work is presented at England’s Yorkshire Sculpture Park. With more than 150 sculptures, drawings, and dance and theater sets from The Noguchi Museum’s collection, including five major sculptures from the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum in Mure, Japan, the selection represents nearly every facet of Noguchi’s career. The work is situated throughout the YSP’s four indoor galleries, located within a pastoral environment of eighteenth-century parkland. Corresponding to Noguchi’s enduring interest in the interaction between art and landscape, some work is also sited outdoors, complementing the park’s permanently displayed sculptures and installations.
