Intelligence Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony at the Noguchi Museum

Last weekend I visited “Tom Sachs: Tea Ceremony” at the Noguchi Museum in Queens. The exhibition is the first at the Museum to present work by a single artist other than Isamu Noguchi.

The show is inspired by “chanoyu”, the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Noguchi’s large scale sculptures still fill the spaces in the Museum’s indoor/outdoor galleries, but are accentuated by new works by Sachs including a tea house, plywood airplane, and bronze-cast bonsai tree.

“Tea Ceremony" also includes elements inspired by Sachs’ well-known fascination with NASA and space exploration. Interested attendees can also sign up to be a guest at an actual tea ceremony hosted by Tom Sachs or photographer Johnny Fogg, Only two to three people can join each of the limited tea ceremonies and applicants must watch a series of Tom Sachs films before being considered. Further information is available at www.noguchi.com.

The exhibition is on view through July 24, 2016.
