the wonders of graphic novels in Asia

Japanese comic books are a central element of contemporary popular culture to the point where it has overshadowed all other comic book production from the rest of the Asian continent (which is nevertheless prolific).

Mangasia is the first exhibition to show the connections between mangas throughout Asia, shining a light on their diversity through the widest selection of original works of this type ever presented, most of which have rarely – if ever! – left their home countries. The exhibition also reveals their creative process in the form of written texts and sketches – right up to the finalized pages. Curated by British comic book critic Paul Gravett and a team of roughly twenty advisors, this exhibition offers an in-depth exploration of a new continent we call Mangasia. Works from Japan, North and South Korea, India, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Bhutan, Cambodia, East Timor, Mongolia and Vietnam show the diversity of comic book production in this vast region of the globe, tackling fairy tale folklore, history, and experimentation.
