The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum
Founded in 1985 by category-defying Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum (The Noguchi Museum) in Queens, New York, advances the understanding and appreciation of Noguchi’s art and legacy. It was the first museum in the United States to be established, designed, and installed by a living artist to exhibit their own work. Housing the world’s largest collection of Noguchi’s works, the Museum features indoor galleries in a repurposed industrial building and a serene outdoor sculpture garden. In addition to managing the artist’s archives and catalogue raisonné, the Museum exhibits a comprehensive selection of Noguchi’s material culture, from sculpture, models, and drawings to his personal possessions. Provocative installations drawn from the permanent collection, together with special exhibitions and collaborations with practitioners across disciplines, offer a multifaceted view of Noguchi’s art and illuminate his enduring influence, making the Museum an international hub for Noguchi research and appreciation.
