Solid Doubts: Robert Stadler at The Noguchi Museum

As part of Oui Design

From Apr 26-Sep 3, 2017, the Noguchi Museum presents Solid Doubts, an exhibition that explores Robert Stadler's and Isamu Noguchi's work.

Continuing the Museum’s collaboration with contemporary artists of all disciplines, the category-defying works of designer Robert Stadler (Austria, b. 1966) will be installed in tandem with Noguchi’s sculptures, raising as many aesthetic, functional, and philosophical questions as possible.

With four installations of the two mens’ work in the Museum’s ground level galleries and sculpture garden, the exhibition explores ways in which both Robert Stadler and Isamu Noguchi probe—and sometimes undermine—concepts such as “art” and “design,” “functional” and “aesthetic,” “material” and “space.”

Solid Doubts is organized by The Noguchi Museum and curated by Noguchi Museum Senior Curator Dakin Hart in collaboration with Robert Stadler.
