at Czech Centre Tokyo
Media: Manga
(2018-01-29 - 2018-02-28)

The fate of Czech comics was closely related to the political development of the new sovereign state of Czechoslovakia throughout most of the 20th century. This included a short period of creative freedom, and repeated periods of stagnation and control. It has now been 30 years since democracy was restored in 1989, and much has changed in both the country now known as the Czech Republic and the comics produced there. This exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of the First Czechoslovak Republic reflects the history of Czech Republic and the comics it has produced to date.

The system allows visitors to experience the automatic synchronized playback of background music and character voices that are personalized to match the actions and properties of the visitor simply by standing in front of the exhibit while holding a dedicated device.

Koide and each of the children interact with each other in creative moments in order to pursue their own unique ideas and interests. This exhibition will trace the process of how 15 children worked together with Koide to expand their creativity.

Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals
at Ghibli Museum, Mitaka
Media: Illustration - Animation
(2017-05-28 - 2018-05-01)

Studio Ghibli films are renowned for depicting daily life in great detail. What often lingers in the memory of viewers are scenes of food and meals: Pazu and Sheeta sharing a fried egg on toast in “Castle in the Sky,” Chihiro shedding tears of relief while eating a rice ball received from Haku in “Spirited Away,” Howl frying up bacon and eggs for Sophie, Markl and everyone in “Howl’s Moving Castle,” the list goes on… The foods that appear are not particularly special, often being rather common, but their appearance in the films always has special meaning. Pazu and Sheeta’s hearts connect when they share the same food. The courage to face her challenges blooms in Chihiro as she eats the rice ball. Around the dining table a family forms while everyone enjoys bacon and eggs in “Howl’s Moving Castle.” Scenes of casual meals are infused with tremendous storytelling importance, and achieving dramatic effect while creating delicious-looking meals and characters enjoying them - show in their expressions and gestures - comes from the power of finely detailed drawing. Food that is still warm, that looks soft and tender, with the wonderful flavor showing on the faces of those eating them - these scenes of meals are appealing and charming. No dialogue is needed to convey deliciousness and happiness. This exhibition introduces how food can be drawn to appear even more delectable than the real thing, creating scenes of joy.

Moto started working as a freelance illustrator in 1990 and in 1995 made his debut as a manga artist. After publishing manga including “Recosuke-kun” and “Wild Mountain,” in recent years he has shifted the focus of his activities to illustration for use in commercials, magazines, picture books and other media. Meanwhile Moto is also known as a record collector and an authority well-versed in the realm of music. He regularly contributes to music magazines and the like, and he is on familiar terms with many musicians. From these musical connections, Moto‘s works have many fans within the music industry, while he has been involved in creating CD jackets and booklets for popular Japanese musicians such as Unicorn and Spitz. In 2014 Moto also founded his own record label, Rhion Records, specializing in the production of 7-inch (EP) records. Here he personally handles all aspects from planning and jacket design to product release. His ongoing and unique activities in this sphere are in sync with his unsurpassed love of music. This exhibition will showcase more than 200 of Moto’s original illustrations and manga drawings that have served as the source of his creative activities in book production. His chosen theme is “rock (music) and manga (stories).” [Related Events] Gallery Tour Date: Mar. 27 (Tue), 19:10-20:10 Admission: Free (booking required) Capacity: 40 *Event in Japanese *Please see the official website for further details.
