Get more out of Abstract Expressionism: Looking East from the Far West with the accompanying audio tour available on the HoMA app. Curator Theresa Papanikolas wrote fascinating stories about seven pieces in the show. For example, about Isamu Noguchi’s Victim, she describes the artist’s experience as an activist during World War II, when he voluntarily entered a War Relocation Center in a bid to improve conditions for his fellow Japanese-American residents. Ultimately, Noguchi’s plan did not work out quite as he had hoped.

If you already have the app on your phone, you’ll find the audio tour in the drop-down menu as “Audio Tour.”
If you haven’t yet downloaded our app, here’s all the information you need to get and use it. 

Once you’re in the audio tour section of the app press the play icon for the corresponding piece. As you walk into the exhibition space, the order of artworks with corresponding tracks is arranged clockwise around the gallery—look for the headphones icon on the title cards.
