Manga マンガ at The British Museum

Great Russell St Bloomsbury London

From Saturday, March 23 2019 until Monday, August 26 2019

Enter a graphic world where art and storytelling collide in the largest exhibition of manga ever to take place outside of Japan. Manga is a visual narrative art form that has become a multimedia global phenomenon, telling stories with themes from gender to adventure, in real or imagined worlds.

Immersive and playful, the exhibition will explore manga’s global appeal and cultural crossover, showcasing original Japanese manga and its influence across the globe, from anime to ‘cosplay’ dressing up.

This influential art form entertains, inspires and challenges – and is brought to life like never before in this ground-breaking exhibition.

The British Museum has rounded up 10 key works that chart the history of manga in their blog.
