one after another (tentative title): NMAO's 40th Anniversary Exhibition

January 21 – May 6, 2018

This special exhibition is designed to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the National Museum of Art, Osaka, which opened in 1977. Through the works of some 20 Japanese and foreign artists, including Robert Rauschenberg, Karin Sander, Allora & Calzadilla, Janet Cardiff and George Miller, Danh Vo, Nairy Baghramian, and Sasamoto Aki, the exhibition will shed light on various aspects of our society by examining things that have been imbued with time, history, and memory from a wide range of views. It will also consider the future potential of the museum.
