"Manga: Short Comics from Modern Japan"
2002-01-09 until 2002-02-08
London Institute Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

Manga, Japan's comics phenomenon, now accounts for two fifths of all publications going to print in Japan, and its impact is increasing worldwide. Manga influences every aspect of Japanese visual culture, and art is no exception. Some leading Japanese contemporary artists, sometimes termed Neo-Pop, have such a close relationship with manga that traditional boundaries between popular and high culture are being eroded. Manga: Short Comics from Modern Japan is curated by Fusanosuke Natsume.

Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Japan Foundation are jointly hosting a one day symposium on the theme of Manga and Art on Friday 1 February 2002 in central London, U.K.

This event is part of Japan 2001, a nationwide celebration of the culture and lifestyle of Japan. Japan 2001 has more than 2000 events - the largest festival of its kind anywhere in the world.

Chelsea College of Art and Design is part of the London Institute, Europe's largest centre for education in art, design and communication.

During the day, Makoto Aida talks about his controversial, sometimes politically incorrect‚ work. Speakers discuss manga as a phenomenon of visual culture, and its impact today. Is manga in all its forms set to become part of everybody's visual culture-
