The Noguchi Museum

The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum, now known as The Noguchi Museum, was founded in 1985 by artist Isamu Noguchi in Long Island City, Queens. It was the first museum in the United States designed by a living artist for his own works.

The goal of the institution is to promote understanding and appreciation of Noguchi’s art and legacy by allowing visitors to have personal experiences with his works without interpretive barriers. In addition to permanent installations, the museum offers changing exhibitions that highlight Noguchi’s influence on contemporary artists and cultures. It also serves as a center for research and education with a comprehensive archive of Noguchi’s works.

Aesence is an independent art and design publication dedicated to minimalist aesthetics. Founded out of a deep appreciation and fascination, Aesence aims to promote awareness and appreciation of minimalism in art and design.
