TRANSNATIONAL ART 2012 is the fourth installment of this exciting non-commercial group exhibition held at the prestigious Osaka Contemporary Art Center from January 16th to 21st, 2012. TRANSNATIONAL ART is curated by SoHo Art Gallery and will feature over 45 artists of diverse national backgrounds working in a wide array of media such as painting, sculpture, photography, etchings, mixed media, installation, video, digital media and performance art. As the only exhibition of its kind in the city, Transnational Art is a focused collaborative effort between Japanese and foreign curators, gallery directors and artists and serves as a professional vehicle for artist development and promotion.
The purpose of the show is to bring to the forefront works and artists form various cultural and national backgrounds, revealing the increasingly global nature of Osaka’s art scene through a strictly curated exhibition. TRANSNATIONAL ART fosters the development of good relationships between member artists and introduces participating members to a vast network of art lovers and art industry professionals. TRANSNATIONAL ART is living proof of the richness of Osaka as an emerging international art center with excellent artists; and of the growing possibilities and opportunities in the city.
