In May 1942, Japanese-American sculptor and landscape artist Isamu Noguchi voluntarily entered a relocation camp in Poston, Arizona, hoping to leverage his cachet in the art world to improve conditions for fellow internees. This exhibition includes dozens of sculptures and archival documents that show how Noguchi’s experiences during the Second World War shaped his art.
