2018 Exhibitions & Special Events

Exhibition: February 28, 2018–January 27, 2019

Sculpture by Other Means: Akari

Isamu Noguchi’s Akari light sculptures, the exquisite washi paper and bamboo lanterns that have become icons of modern design, are displayed in multitudinous forms across several site-specific installations. Lightweight, collapsible, and luminous, Akari are surely among Noguchi’s—and maybe the world’s—most ubiquitous sculptures; they are certainly the most perfectly integrated into life.

Exhibition: February 28, 2018–January 27, 2019

Akari Unfolded: A Collection by Ymer & Malta

A companion exhibition will comprise more than ten new lamp designs by six designers from Ymer & Malta, a French firm that has been working to project Akari values—naturalistic light and warmth, harmony between ancient and modern technologies, timelessness, and cultural hybridity—into the future.
