about

The celebrated New York museum captured by two of today's most respected photographers, Tina Barney and Stephen Shore.

The Noguchi Museumprovides a unique perspective on the artwork of Isamu Noguchi and its setting in the Noguchi Museum through the eyes of renowned photographers Stephen Shore and Tina Barney. Noguchi, a modernist sculptor and designer, founded and designed the museum for the specific purpose of exhibiting his works. The 1920sera industrial space in Long Island City, Queens, thus became the first and only museum in the US to be designed by a living artist for the artist's own work.

Shore has photographed individual works on view at the museum, documenting them in new and surprising ways; and Barney has photographed visitors at the museum and its events, capturing something of the spatial experience of the museum. These new photographs comprise a beautiful object that pays tribute to the museum and artwork while highlighting the skill and eye of these two photographers.

This is the only book that focuses on the unique dynamic between the museum's artworks, architecture, and visitors and the museum celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2015, coinciding with publication.

The book includes a foreword by the museum director, Jenny Dixon, and a selection of archival images documenting the transformation of the museummany published here for the first time.

"Of all the places in the city you can go to recharge your spiritual batteries, one of the loveliest and least well known is the sculpture garden at the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, Queens." —The New York Times on the Noguchi Museum"Isamu Noguchi was a man of dualities: West and East, coarse and refined, optimist and realist." —NYmag.com on Isamu Noguchi"As a recorder of the fleeting but highly charged moments in the everyday, the weight of Shore's influence is undeniable." —Creative Review on Stephen Shore"Shore's spatial explorations and Barney's intimate portraits celebrate Noguchi himself, who combined abstract sculptural concerns with sensitivity to people and emotions" —Metropolis"A new book of photographs by Tina Barney and Stephen Shore focuses on the museum and its visitors as well as the quiet power of the artist's oeuvre" —Wall Street Journal Off Duty"an elegant commemoration" —Surface
