[Second half] 2017/4/14(Fri)~5/14(Sun) 
This exhibition has two rotation periods with different contents.
*Closed on April 13th

The Kyoto International Manga Museum is pleased to present an exhibition focused on ‘drawing’ in support of manga culture.

This exhibition will feature works by 13 artists, showcasing roughly 300 pieces of original manga artwork (including some replicas, exhibited across two rotation periods). In addition to being a valuable opportunity to closely experience the outstanding artistic techniques used by manga artist, the exhibition also explores the unique Japanese cultural environment that nurtured them from ‘readers’ into ‘drawers.’

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.

Related events such as talk shows (3/185/3) and workshop are also scheduled to be held.

Content

Japanese people draw so much manga, and not only professional artists. Indeed, many people draw ‘pictures.’ A lot of manga readers have experience ‘drawing’, by imitating their favorite manga, and it is no exaggeration to say that the massive numbers of these ‘drawing’ readers who continue to exist have sustained the prosperity of modern manga.
This exhibition focuses on the intrinsic acts of ‘drawing’, ‘showing people’, and ‘enjoying’ manga. In addition to introducing the outstanding artistic techniques of preeminent artists from the postwar period to the present through original artwork, materials, and footage, we will use historical materials to explain the cultural background that nurtured and brought forth these artists.
