Video: The Making of Futura Akari Limited Editions, August 2021

With the release of two limited edition series of Akari lanterns and prints hand-painted by FUTURA2000, The Noguchi Museum is delighted to continue a collaboration that began in 2020 with the exhibition Futura Akari

In August 2021, in Isamu Noguchi’s former studio located across the street from The Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, Queens, Leonard McGurr (FUTURA2000) hand-painted a series of Akari 1A, all of which feature designs by Noguchi screenprinted in yellow, orange, red, green, and grey colorways; and a series of hand-paintings on screenprints featuring surface designs for Akari. The two Akari print designs were created by Noguchi in different colorways for the Akari 1A beginning around 1954. The Akari prints are screenprinted in Japan on washi paper.

The Noguchi Museum is grateful to McGurr for this ongoing collaboration, and for his generosity in joining us to make these unique editions available to support the Museum and its programming. 

Each lamp and print is hand-painted and unique. A certificate of authenticity is included.
