Installation view, Robert Stadler: Solid Doubts

Solid Doubts: Robert Stadler at The Noguchi Museum

April 26, 2017 – September 10, 2017

Continuing the Museum’s collaboration with contemporary artists of all disciplines, the category-defying works of Robert Stadler (Austria, b. 1966) are installed in tandem with Noguchi’s sculptures, raising as many aesthetic, functional, and philosophical questions as possible.

With four installations of the two mens’ work in the Museum’s ground-level galleries and sculpture garden, the exhibition explores ways in which both Robert Stadler and Isamu Noguchi probe—and sometimes undermine—concepts such as “art” and “design,” “functional” and “aesthetic,” “material” and “space.”

Solid Doubts is organized by The Noguchi Museum and curated by Noguchi Museum Senior Curator Dakin Hart in collaboration with Robert Stadler.

All Robert Stadler works are courtesy of the artist and Carpenters Workshop Gallery. Major support for Solid Doubts: Robert Stadler at The Noguchi Museum is provided by Van Cleef & Arpels, FACE (French American Cultural Exchange) Foundation; through Oui Design—supported by Institut Français-Paris, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, FACE Foundation, the Florence Gould Foundation, Van Cleef & Arpels, Air France—and Bundeskanzleramt Österreich-Federal Chancellery of Austria, and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts. Generous assistance has also been provided by Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The artist’s transportation and accommodations are supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.
