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

The Noguchi Museum
32-37 Vernon Boulevard,
Long Island City, New York, USA
Jan 18, 2017 To Jan 07, 2018


Detail: 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.
