This exhibition offers a retrospective of Yamagishi’s works, as an installment of last year’s touring exhibition from the Yayoi Museum in Tokyo. In our museum we have 34 newly exhibited original works from Hiizuru tokoro no Tenshi. Please enjoy viewing the metamorphosis undertaken from debut to her most recent works.
-The Dawn of NIPPON Animation- The pioneers of “moving cartoon”
Exhibition: Drawing Manga! –Lines, Panels, Kyara
Furthermore, this will be the final venue for this exhibition which began at the Oita Prefectural Art Museum in August 2015, and has since been held in five locations around the country.
Yet looking at the contents of the popular exhibitions, it cannot be denied that many of them are ‘manga exhibitions for manga fans.’ Exhibitions are not venues limited to fans and stakeholders, that they alone may have the opportunity to enjoy artwork. They are also venues for new fans and consumers to be born.
In this exhibition we have experimented by asking the question ‘Manga Exhibition for Whom?’ That is, assuming visitors other than manga fans, we would like to consider together ‘what is the meaning and enjoyment gained through viewing manga in a museum exhibition?’
In this exhibition we will focus on the furoku from the period that enchanted those 2.5 million girls, as the pivotal axis from which to follow the changes in furoku culture from the dawn of Ribon to the present day.
Kotera Kyuho and Sakai Shichima : From ‘Osaka Puck’ to ‘New Treasure Island’
In response to the many requests, the duration of the exhibition has been extended from 8th to 13th.
*The exhibited contents will be partly changed. The Kyoto International Manga Museum is honored to present the "Kotera Kyuho and Sakai Shichima : From 'Osaka Puck' to 'New Treasure Island'" introducing the works of manga artist Kotera Kyuho (1889-1962), and his pupil Sakai Shichima (1905-1969), who were preeminent figures in the pre-war and post-war manga scene.
This exhibition will showcase their works while exploring the enormous role they played in the manga history of the Osaka and greater Kansai area.
To commemorating this anniversary we are holding an exhibition "Yoro Takeshi & Miyazaki Hayao Duo Exhibition". This exhibition will approach their private hobby by focusing on Yoro Takeshi's "insects" and Miyazaki Hayao's "fantasy" to introduce you to their "another world".
