Noguchi: We are the Landscape of All We Know

Co-created by Matthew Kirsch of the Noguchi Museum, and Diane Durston, the Arlene Schnitzer Curator of Culture, Art, and Education at the Portland Japanese Garden, this exhibition was on loan to the Garden from The Noguchi Museum in New York. The works in this exhibition date from the late 1940s to the mid 1980s, spanning the artist’s long career in sculpture and design. The exhibition featured 22 works in stone, metal, and paper on view in the Garden Pavilion Gallery with a selection of large scale stone work on view outdoors on the Overlook Courtyard.

“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.”
