Shojo Manga: The World of Japanese Girls’ Comics

Friday 18th March 2016 - Sunday 12th June 2016

Shojo Manga, House of Illustration, King's Cross

Calling all Manga fans! The first major exhibition of Japanese Shōjo manga in the UK

House of Illustration hosts the first major exhibition of Japanese Shōjo manga, featuring ‘Genga’ (Dash) prints of the pioneering work of 1970s manga artists Akiko Hatsu and Keiko Takemiya, and contemporary artist Yukiko Kai.

Japan’s shōjo manga culture dates back to the post-war years, but only evolved into the broad-ranging and hugely-popular form of today as a result of the innovative work of a small group of artists in the 1970s.

The exhibition is running in association with the Kyoto International Manga Museum and The Lakes International Comic Art Festival.

House of Illustration is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-6pm.

The exhibition opens March 18th and will run until August 11th. Visit the House of Illustration website for more information and tickets. The gallery is also running manga workshops for families and teens during March and April.
