Art happening

Japanese curator Shogo Otani carefully installs one of the rare 17th-century painted screens for the exhibition ``Seasons -- The Beauty of Transience in Japanese Art'' at the New South Wales Art Gallery in Sydney yesterday. The 94 works in the exhibition, including paintings, ceramics, hanging scrolls, writing boxes, tea utensils and textiles, are examples of some of the finest Japanese art created over the last 400 years. The screen paintings are on display for only five weeks due to their sensitivity to light, and it is the first time such rare works of Japanese art have been on display in Australia.Aug 15, 2003
