Self-Interned, 1942:
Noguchi in Poston War Relocation Center

Despite being exempt from Executive Order 9066, which authorized the internment of Japanese citizens and American citizens of Japanese heritage in the Western states, Isamu Noguchi voluntarily entered a camp in Arizona. This exhibition draws from the Noguchi Museum’s collection to evoke that harrowing period while revealing the impact of experiences at Poston on Noguchi’s art.

Exhibition: January 18, 2017–January 7, 2018

Gateways and Deserts

These two accompanying installations focus on artworks that evoke some of what Noguchi extracted from his experience as a wartime internee. Gateways juxtaposes examples of his voids and doorways; Deserts is a synthesized landscape composed of objects inspired by the arid parts of the American southwest and the Middle East.
