Transnational Art is a non-commercial and non-profit exhibition carefully curated to include some of the brightest and most talented artists active in our region.
Transnational Art 2011 presents a unique opportunity for people in Osaka and Kansai to discover talented artists enriching the art landscape in the region. These artists come from within and outside of Japan and through their unique visions, act as both mirrors and windows; allowing us to see ourselves and at the same time see through their works into other worlds. These artists find themselves working and living between different countries, cultures and ideas, and this is reflected in the work they produce.
The exhibition is curated by SoHo Art Gallery owners Celio H. Barreto (Canada) and Yachiyo Nakao (Japan), and it is independently produced with the participating artists, the cooperation of The Flanders Center and Osaka Arts Planning; is endorsed by the Kansai "Bunkaryou" Power of Culture project and has the participation of AVA Galleria of Helsinki, Finland and Taigado Garow of Kyoto, Japan.
