Manga Hokusai Manga


By introducing some of the similarities and differences between modern Japanese manga, which now enjoy worldwide popularity, and Hokusai Manga, a collection of sketches by the ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), this exhibition sets out to introduce the charms of this unique field of Japanese culture.

Focusing on pictorial storytelling and participatory culture of “manga” from different periods, the exhibits include panels, books, videos, and a group of new works by contemporary manga artists.

An internationally touring exhibition presented by The Japan Foundation.
