Members are invited to come and explore our exhibitions after hours.
Join us for an exclusive private view of Noguchi. This exhibition celebrates Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988), one of the most experimental and pioneering artists of the 20th century.
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.
Get double the art as Shilpa Gupta: Sun at Night in the Curve will also be open late.
Our Private views are extremely popular, if you're no longer able to attend please email [email protected] to return your free ticket.
