Pratt + Noguchi

Saturday, May 12, 2018 - Sunday, May 20, 2018

A collaboration between The Noguchi Museum and Pratt Institute, Interior Design.

Each Spring, Pratt Institute’s Interior Design Graduate Level Qualifying Design Studio course asks students to draw inspiration from Isamu Noguchi’s work.

This year, students chose objects from the Museum’s permanent collection on long-term view and highlights from the Akari: Sculpture by Other Means exhibition to research and incorporate into a hypothetical Noguchi Museum Annex in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Work from all participating students is exhibited at The Noguchi Museum in the lower-level gallery; including drawings, examples of object analysis, and four select student projects in their entirety.
