Ghost tales at the Museum
An Exhibition by Iris de Moüy
Here at the Kyoto International Manga Museum, we are holding an exhibition introducing pieces by a new and upcoming illustrator/children's book author Iris de Moüy from France.
Iris has been a resident at Villa Kujoyama--an artist residence, one of the five branches of Institut Francais Japon--since March of this year, and has been busy researching the monsters of Japan. This exhibition will premiere her new pieces created during her stay.
June 27 - August 31, 2015
10am - 6pm (Admission to the museum is until 5:30pm)
Closed : Wednesdays
* But open every day between July 22 - August 26
|Venue||Kyoto International Manga Museum|
Organization : Kyoto International Manga Museum,
Kyoto Seika University International Manga Research Center
We will introduce seven of Iris' monsters she drew for the children on largely printed panels. The viewers will tour the Museum as if on a fun excursion, in search of the monsters placed at various locations.
As a note, this exhibition is the fourth installment introducing artists-in-residence at Villa Kujoyama following exhibitions of works from Lucie Albon in 2009, Pierre Gajewski in 2010 and Geraldine Kosiak in 2012.
