Isamu Noguchi, Patent Holder: Designing the World of Tomorrow was an exhibition held at The Noguchi Museum and in expanded form at the Dr. M. T. Geoffrey Yeh Art Gallery at St. John’s University in 2014 and 2015.
The show explored the symbiotic relationship in Noguchi’s work between sculpture and design in the years leading up to the 1939 World’s Fair and his extensive design work beyond this period up to 1985. This accompanying catalogue features color photographs of much of the work in the exhibitions, as well as an essay by Deborah A. Goldberg.
