reckless guesswork, insinuations and possible inventions that have turned up in otn's email: the fantastically wealthy art collector soichiro fukutake who (amongst many other things) owns all the art and museums on the island of naoshima in the inland sea of japan, is coming to live in new zealand • at te papa the welsh guy is coming and the senior curator is going • the big idea from cnz’s international committee this year is to support the melbourne art fair • the film commission has told cnz that it will no longer support the production of non-narrative ie ‘art’ films • 108, the number of works in the roundabout collection to be shown at the city gallery later in 2010, is based on the number of prayer beads in a buddhist mala • any missed details, changes to outright lies, indignant denials or embellishments gratefully received and the best of them generously rewarded.
