Isamu Noguchi was among the most innovative American sculptors of the twentieth century, creating works that were far ahead of his time. Yet Noguchi frequently found inspiration in ancient art and architecture, from Egyptian pyramids, to Buddhist temples and Zen gardens, to American Indian burial mounds. The exhibition Isamu Noguchi, Archaic/Modern is the first full-scale exhibition to explore how the ancient world shaped Noguchi’s vision for the future.

At Paul Kasmin Gallery at New York City, The Noguchi Museum creates a special installation in the rear gallery of an exhibition devoted to the Parisian alley called l’impasse Ronsin, where numerous twentieth-century artists had their studios. The installation evokes the “Brancusi-like” studio that Noguchi established in Gentilly, just south of Paris, in 1927, after working as the Romanian sculptor’s studio assistant.

“If sculpture is the rock, it is also the space between rocks and between the rock and a man, and the communication and contemplation between.”
-Isamu Noguchi

Noguchi’s interest in rock was essentially boundless, encompassing all of its manifestations on earth, and off: in our structures and adornments, religions and myths, the tools we have developed trying to understand and manage our place in the world, and in our imaginations and languages.
