Ja­panese cul­ture

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The world of anime, manga and other quirky ex­ports from Ja­panese sub­cul­ture will be tak­ing over the Gus Fisher Gallery this month in an in­ter­na­tional trav­el­ling ex­hi­bi­tion.

Ja­pan: King­dom of Characters ex­plores the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Ja­pan’s most fa­mous characters and Ja­panese so­ci­ety from the 1950s to the present day.

Life-sized models, fig­urines and large dis­plays al­low a glimpse into the unique phe­nom­e­non that has rapidly spread to the rest of the world.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs from Jan­uary 9 to Fe­bru­ary 1 at The Ken­neth My­ers Cen­tre, 74 Short­land St.
