Isamu Noguchi: New York and Japan

Thanks to the wonders of technology, you can sit at your computer or phone or iPad and listen to the artist Isamu Noguchi speak to you about art! Watch this amazing video from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s website. Noguchi is showing us around his studio in New York and talking about how he works. This is a particularly special experience in 2018 since Noguchi died in 1988. SFMoma Isamu Noguchi film

This film provides incentive for you to visit Noguchi’s studio in New York. It was such a pleasure to visit with the New York art tour for Art Tours by Amy in 2014. Noguchi Museum in New York

In addition, Noguchi states “The whole world is someplace where you belong.” This is so appropriate when you consider that the other major Noguchi museum is on Shikoku in Japan. Visiting Noguchi’s home and garden in Mure on the island of Shikoku is magical and well worth the effort. We visited here on the Japan art tours for Art Tours by Amy in 2016 and 2017.
