The exhibition “Mangasia: Wonderlands of Asian Comics” will present the largest ever selection of original artworks from Asian comics, displayed alongside their printed, mass-produced forms, much of them rarely if ever shown outside their country of origin. The exhibition will also reveal the creative processes that underlie their production, from scripts, sketches and layouts to finished pages.

Curated by Paul Gravett and a team of over twenty advisors, “Mangasia: Wonderlands of Asian Comics” will survey the entire realm of this new comics continent of ‘Mangasia’, through artwork from Japan, North and South Korea, India, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, The Philippines and Singapore, as well as emerging comics cultures in Bhutan, Cambodia, East Timor, Mongolia and Vietnam. Thematic sections will contrast the diversity of fantastical folklore, real history and daring experimentation in comics from across the whole region. The exhibition will explore precursors of comics found in Asia’s visual narrative traditions and also their continuing impact beyond the printed page on live-action and animated film and television, music, games, fashion and contemporary art.
