This major spring exhibition in the Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery will explore contemporary manga and digital anime and link them to their historic roots. Using the British Museum’s growing collection of historic and contemporary works, with exciting loans, the exhibition will span Japanese and international forms of manga.
Literally meaning ‘pictures run riot’ this narrative art form has become a multimedia phenomenon and the exhibition will explore manga’s global appeal and cultural crossover by showcasing original Japanese manga and its influence across the world.
On until August 23rd, find out more and book tickets HERE.
