An exhibition celebrating Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988), one of the most experimental and pioneering artists of the 20th century.

Noguchi explores the kaleidoscopic career of a true artistic polymath. His practice spanned sculpture, architecture, dance and design across six decades. This exhibition, which is his first touring retrospective in Europe for 20 years, focuses on Noguchi as a global citizen and his risk-taking approach to sculpture as a living environment. Embracing social, environmental and spiritual consciousness, he believed sculpture could be ‘a vital force in our everyday life’, as a way of creating harmony between humans, nature and industry.

Over 150 works are presented, including an extraordinary range of sculptures – made in stone, ceramics, wood and aluminium – as well as theatre set designs, playground models, lighting and furniture design.
