Mori Arts Center Gallery
Down a Rabbit Hole, Alice’s Wonderland peopled with such figures as Cheshire Cat, the Queen of hearts and the Mad Hatter has been a rich mine of materials for artists and creators for years.
At Roppongi Hills, Mori Arts Center Gallery will soon host an international tour of V&A’s hugely successful exhibition on creative works featuring “Alice in Wonderland”.
Highlights of “Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser ”
Since the 19th century, Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” has yielded various forms of adaptations and expressions across genres – art, movies, photography, performing arts and fashion, among others.
This exhibition will explore the influence of Alice through approximately 300 pieces, mostly on loan from the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London.
Star attractions include John Tenniel’s original drawings for the Lewis Carroll book, materials from Disney and Tim Burton movies, works of Salvador Dali and Yayoi Kusama.
Also on display are dresses and costumes featuring Alice, along with a robe of the Punk Lolita genre made in Japan
These multifaceted objects will be displayed in a playful way, based on the London exhibition designed by a renowned stage designer, Tom Piper.
All this sounds promising for both children and adults alike, this summer, to discover a perpetual Wonderland full of thrills.
