out ‘n’ about

The Citi Exhibition: MANGA

The British Museum, Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG

23rd May - 26th August 

First things first, manga is pronounced ‘mah-n-gah’, since ‘a’ is usually ‘ah’ in Japanese!

And since we’re more than a little bit in love with all things Japanese right now, from food to fashion, like wise the art of manga has gained cult following with creative buffs the world over.

So what exactly is manga?  The holy grail in Japan and a global multi-billion-pound business.  Manga is the powerful art of story telling through graphics, comics, games (Pokemon) and animation (anime), covering all genres from fantastical fairy tales, to family dynamics, ghost stories to grisly horrors and even gay vampires! It has become a global phenomenon and international visual language.

From doe-eyed Disneyesque animations to complicated adult plots, often with a social message, characters are principally portrayed with an over exaggerated zeal.  Even The British Museum itself has appeared in a 2010 manga, Professor Munakata’s British Museum Adventure.

The internationally renowned artist Tezuka Osamu, billed as the ‘father of manga’,  created over 700 manga titles including the first milestone Astro Boy series way back in 1951.  

His, plus many other famous artists’ work, will be on show along with a facsimile of the first Tokyo manga bookshop and the highly treasured Shintomiza Kabuki Theatre Curtain.

Fathom your way through the manga genre, comics are rated according to their suitability, A for all, and M for mature adults. Manga has a long and complex history in Japanese art and is respected, revered, even idolised with fans forming clubs to celebrate the culture. This exhibition will be the largest to take place outside of Japan and as the Museum attracts bus loads to the Japanese galleries everyday already, it is likely to be rammed, so book your ticket now!

And, as if you don’t need tempting, kids go free and students get 2-for-1 tickets on Fridays.
