Event Description

Akari: Sculpture by Other Means explores Noguchi’s near limitless ambitions for luminous paper lanterns as both sculptures and a way to transform any space into a home by making light an organizing sculptural principle. The exhibition also includes a fascinating selection of archival materials, with vintage photographs, advertisements, and Akari catalogues, that suggests that Noguchi’s thinking about the presentation of Akari was a continually shifting enterprise.
