Noguchi for Danh Vo: Counterpoint presents art and design works by the celebrated modern sculptor Isamu Noguchi (American, 1904–1988) in dialogue with work by Danh Vo (Danish, born Vietnam, 1975). For this exhibition, M+ collaborates closely with Vo—one of the most critically acclaimed artists today—and the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum, New York,  on the selection and installation of Noguchi’s wide-ranging work. This collaboration offers a new reading and, at the same time, defines a new relationship between the two artists.

Bringing together two visionary practices and perspectives, the exhibition underscores the artists’ commitment to making connections across geographies and cultures through experimentation, reinforcing M+’s global outlook and international networks. The exhibition unfolds in the M+ Pavilion gallery as well as the surrounding outdoor spaces, creating an open environment that allows for conversation between Noguchi and Vo, and the public.

Programmes accompanying the exhibition include a talk series, a teachers’ private viewing, and a series of guided tours. Access services can be arranged in advance.
