Exhibition followed by light lunch(optional)

An exhibition at the Barbican celebrating Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988), one of the most experimental and pioneering artists of the 20th century.
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.'

I have booked my ticket for 11.15; standard entry is £18, Seniors £13, Art Fund members £9. I recommend you book your ticket first then pay the meetup fee.

Fees (less meetup admin) will go to Songhaven ,a Community Interest Company,not-for-profit social enterprise; “Songhaven is committed to bringing joy and authentic connection to people living with dementia through the power of professional music-making in a relaxed and shame-free setting.”
