Fumio Nanjo, curator


On the 20th of February, 2011, I interviewed Fumio Nanjo by telephone. He is a well-known curator and the Director of the Mori Art Museum. I talked to him for about 25 minutes about Roppongi Art Night, which was scheduled to take place on the night of the 26th to 27th of March, but was cancelled thanks to the Great Tohoku Earthquake that struck Japan on the 11th of March. Mr. Nanjo is a very good English speaker for a Japanese and showed particular skill and mastery in use of y'knows, using an enormous number of them as verbal ballast.
