Sculpture by Isamu Noguchi

This event has finished

An extensive collection of works by Isamu Noguchi, the 20th century Japanese-American artist, is showing in Brazil for the first time, at the Tomie Ohtake institute, with both sculpture, drawings and design pieces on display, all lent by the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, New York.

Noguchi is regarded for his contributions across many different disciplines, from sculpture, to landscape architecture to set work in modern theatre – collaborating with dance pioneer Martha Graham. Noguchi even worked on the famed Dymaxion car by inventor–architect Buckminster Fuller.

But it is perhaps in furniture design that his work is best known. His paper lamps have become known throughout the world, while his Noguchi table, designed in 1947, remains such an icon of modern furniture that it is still in production today.
