Music & Manga: A Vision of Sound   org

 

Shinichi Ishizuka is an award-winning manga artist who uses his personal experiences and pursuits to inspire the subject matter of his works. Together with his editor, Katsuki Dai (who has edited a number of manga magazines and worked with top manga artists), Ishizuka has created a wildly popular graphic series BLUE GIANT and BLUE GIANT SUPREME.  The series centers around a young saxophonist and his passion for jazz, as modelled on Ishizuka’s own familiarity with the instrument.

In celebration of the Citi exhibition Manga at the British Museum (23 May – 26 August 2019), the Japan Foundation is proud to partner with Asia House for their event welcoming Ishizuka and Dai who will discuss the challenges and pleasures in creating a story manga and explore how integral the depiction of sound is in the series. The discussion will include insights into the collaborative processes and relationship of the artist and editor in the creation of story manga. The moderator for the evening will be Professor Nicole Coolidge Rousmaniere, IFAC Handa Curator in Japanese Arts at the British Museum and lead curator of the Manga exhibition.

This event is held in collaboration with the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures, The British Museum, and supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.


Date: 11 July 2019 from 6.45pm
Venue:

Asia House, 63 New Cavendish Street, W1G 7LP London
