OSAKA

"Expressing Ocean And Water in Modern Art — Paul Signac, Fukuda Heihachiro, Sugimoto Hiroshi and Others"

Osaka City Museum of Modern Art, Shinsaibashi Temporary Exhibition Space


By TOMOKO HORI

In ancient times, Osaka flourished as a hub port connecting other regions of Japan. Its rivers, canals and seaways played a vital role in transportation and trade, and before the end of the Edo Period (1603-1867) it had developed into Japan's economic center. The Osaka City Museum of Modern Art, now at the planning stage, will be built in the Nakanoshima district of Kita Ward, a narrow sandbank between the Dojima and Tosabori rivers that is considered by many as a symbol of Osaka.
