Museum of Stones is based on the first installation of contemporary artistsí work throughout The Noguchi Museum in 2015-16. Featuring over 100 works by nearly 40 artists, including Mel Bochner, Dove Bradshaw, Jimmie Durham, Yoko Ono, Gabriel Orozco, Keith Sonnier and Toshiko Takaezu, as well as examples of Paleolithic handaxes and Chinese scholarsí rocks, Museum of Stones explores the idea that nature makes rocks and human agency turns rocks into stone.
