The Doraemon Exhibition Tokyo 2017
1 November 2017 – 8 January 2018
Mori Arts Center Gallery
Since its birth in 1970, Doraemon, a cat-shaped robot time travelling from the 22th century and the hugely popular character by manga artist Fujiko F Fujio, has fascinated the world through comic strip, TV animation and movie series.
“Would you create your own Doraemon, please?”
Organized under such concept, the exhibition brings together 28 Japanese artists and units to realize their unique art of Doraemon in a variety of media, from photography, video, cartoon, to Japanese painting and sculpture.
15 years after the first Doraeomon exhibition held in 2002, this edition will feature the most famous manga icon in various art forms, under the direction of Yuji Yamashita (art historian / professor at Meiji Gakuin University).
