Edmund de Waal has been awarded the Isamu Noguchi Award for his contribution as both a writer and artist.

Established in 2014 and presented annually, the award perpetuates Noguchi’s legacy by acknowledging highly accomplished individuals who share his spirit of innovation, unbounded imagination, and uncompromising commitment to creativity. Honouring those whose work exhibits qualities of artistic excellence, the award also recognises work that carries significant social consciousness and function. De Waal received the award during the annual benefit gala at the Noguchi Museum, New York, on September 2023, along with artist, Theaster Gates, and novelist and editor Hanya Yanagihara.
