Isamu Noguchi: Functional Ceramics

Wednesday, January 27, 2016 - Sunday, July 24, 2016

In honor of Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony, which will include a display of more than 300 of Sachs' handmade porcelain chawan (tea bowls), the Museum is showing a selection of Noguchi's more “functional” ceramics: plates, bowls, trays, and other traditional forms—along with other pieces that play with the notion of use value.
