Isamu Noguchi’s Sculpted Life


The Gunas (1946).  

In late October, “Isamu Noguchi: Master Sculptor,” a retrospective timed to the centennial of the birth of this great Modernist polymath, opens at the Whitney, before traveling to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden; look for Noguchi’s glow-in-the-dark Lunar sculptures and his precarious interlocking-slab constructions of the forties.

In December, the recently renovated Noguchi Museum in Long Island City unveils a new gallery devoted to Noguchi’s biomorphic designs while opening a temporary exhibition of his stage sets, props, and costumes for the Martha Graham Dance Company.

“Isamu Noguchi: Master Sculptor,” at the Whitney Museum, October 28 through January 16, 2005
“Noguchi and Graham: Selected Works for Dance,” at the Noguchi Museum, December 2 through May 1, 2005.
