BSL Tour of Noguchi

An image of Isamu Noguchi working in his studio

A British Sign Language tour of the Noguchi exhibition led by John Wilson, exclusively for Deaf and hard of hearing visitors, highlighting key artworks, using BSL. 

Noguchi explores the kaleidoscopic career of a true artistic polymath. This exhibition, which is his first touring retrospective in Europe for 20 years, focuses on Noguchi as a global citizen and his risk-taking approach to sculpture as a living environment. 

‘Everything is sculpture. Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture.'

Over 150 works are presented, including an extraordinary range of sculptures – made in stone, ceramics, wood and aluminium – as well as theatre set designs, playground models, furniture and lighting.

Embracing social, environmental and spiritual consciousness, Noguchi believed sculpture could 'be a vital force in our everday life' and saw art 'as something which teaches human beings how to become more human.'
