New York City, NY
On view in the upper level galleries are six original photographs by eminent photographers Tina Barney and Stephen Shore, from the publication The Noguchi Museum | A Portrait (Phaidon, 2015); created in honor of the Museum's 30th anniversary.
In The Noguchi Museum - A Portrait, Shore has photographed individual works on view at the museum, documenting them in new and surprising ways; and Barney has photographed visitors at the museum and its events, capturing something of the spatial experience of the museum. These new photographs comprise a beautiful object that pays tribute to the museum and artwork while highlighting the skill and eye of these two photographers.This is the only book that focuses on the unique dynamic between the museum's artworks, architecture, and visitors. The book includes a foreword by the museum director, Jenny Dixon, and a selection of archival images documenting the transformation of the museum -- many published here for the first time.
