The first of a two-part exhibition with artist Brendan Fernandes (b. 1979), a dancer, choreographer, and sculptor, Noguchi: Body-Space Devices is an installation of works from the Museum’s collection.
At the heart of Noguchi’s conception of sculpture is the production of a powerful set of invisible forces between object, viewer, and space. The works in the exhibition reflect Noguchi’s lifelong interest in turning sculpture into a civic practice, from motivating movement of an individual body in relation to an object, to the flow of a company of dancers seeking collective meaning within a set, and, finally, to social progress. Body–Space Devices is a selective survey of the strategies Noguchi used to implicate the body in his work across a wide range of disciplines, encompassing literal use (sets, furniture, play equipment) to works that imply a constructor (puzzle-like interlocking sculptures), and empathy-inspiring biomorphic abstractions. The installation also includes a selection of inspirational objects personally collected by Noguchi.
From September 11, 2019 through March 8, 2020, Body-Space Devices was reconfigured as the site of Brendan Fernandes: Contract and Release.
