Behind the scenes: Upcoming 35th Anniversary exhibition, NMAO Osaka

This is about the making of the Collection Catalogue. About the pencils, the scissors and the glue.

The National Museum of Art Osaka (NMAO) will be celebrating its 35th anniversary with a two-month exhibition, The Allure of the Collection, opening on 21 April 2012. Around 250 works will be on display and a new catalogue will be published to assist the visitors.

All commentaries are currently being updated, and it is expected that the well versed Christopher Stevens will take on the English translation of the essays.

Inspired by Jo Mazzotta from Tate, and in general, by the world's museums' efforts to improve their transparency online, The Bosa Bosa Review will introduce its readers to a number of works from the NMAO collection.

Texts in English authored by The Bosa Bosa Review will be uploaded over the coming weeks, once the intellectual igneous differentiation is done, that is the chemical change occurring during the melting, cooling, erupting, placing, replacing of the thinking, the writing, the trimming and the copy-pasting.

So stay tuned~
