Manga Hokusai Manga introduces 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), in order 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 international travelling exhibition from Kyoto Seika University, Japan.
