Explore the Roots of Manga

Feb 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

In this lavishly illustrated talk Dr. Ellis TINIOS will introduce illustrated popular fiction produced for a mass audience in Japan in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries—a varied body of printed material worthy of wider appreciation. The techniques employed by ukiyo-e artists to construct compelling visual narratives will be explored through a close reading of a volume from a serial novel illustrated by Utagawa Kuniyoshi. The speaker will also consider the motives of those who have tried so hard—and so unsuccessful—to find direct Japanese precedents for contemporary MANGA in Edo-period illustrated fiction and medieval handscrolls.

Participants are welcome to visit the complimentary ‘This is MANGA – the Art of NAOKI URASAWA’ exhibition displayed at the JAPAN HOUSE Gallery.
