Photography Encouraged: Noguchi Edition
December 1, 2016


Today, we begin a periodic series of photos visitors take in our galleries where, with many exhibitions, photography is encouraged. In my daily dive into our social media interactions, I take note of the unique ways you, our visitors, capture your experience in SAAM and the Renwick Gallery. Sometimes highlighting a favorite artwork, other times capturing an intimate moment shared between two people in our spaces, often interpreting art, architecture, and experience through your own vivid, creative viewpoints, it's one of my favorite ways to see our spaces. You never fail to find a new angle, capture a fleeting shadow, draw an interesting connection, or crack a sassy joke.

Many of the images taken in the Isamu Noguchi, Archaic/Modern exhibition reflect the contemplative, futuristic nature of both the artwork and the gallery space. This selection captures texture and details that may be lost in wider shots, and offer a point of focus, of meditation, or a chance to note something new about Noguchi's work.
