Architectural Digest: So This Is What the Noguchi Museum Got Up to During Quarantine

Architectural Digest: So This Is What the Noguchi Museum Got Up to During Quarantine. “With limited social interaction comes more opportunities for reflection, meditation, and contemplation. The last five months have offered that opportunity, though people and institutions have taken to it with varying degrees of enthusiasm. The Noguchi Museum in Queens, New York, has chosen to lean even further into the culture of stillness that their founder Isamu Noguchi engaged with during his lifetime. During one week in May, Dakin Hart, the senior curator of the museum, and artist Nick Knight collaborated on a special project celebrating the ideals of Noguchi. Distance Noguchi is a series of twenty-two films of roughly four hours each (edited down from 80 hours of raw footage) that have now been made available through the museum website.”
