Abstract:

Noguchi's Playscapes is the most comprehensive exhibition to date focusing on the designs of Japanese-American artist, Isamu Noguchi (b. Los Angeles, 1904 - New York, 1988) his vision of playgrounds and the public space. It includes models, sketches, architectural drawings and photographs, along with full-scale reconstructions of play sculptures and playscapes. Noguchi, an artist of the post-war was convinced of that sculpture could be integrated is in some of the everyday ritual of society and thus generate affective ties among the people. He saw parks as public spaces of encounter, of union, of a community. The exhibition "Noguchi playscapes" documents for the first time 50 years of research of the multifaceted artist on plays areas and public parks; in addition, the Museum.
