Japan Society, New York: Exhibition – KRAZY! The Delerious World of Anime x Manga x Video Games
Organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery
Friday March 13 – Sunday June 14
KRAZY! is New York’s first major show dedicated to the Japanese phenomenon of Anime, Manga, and Video Games—three forms of contemporary visual art that are exercising a huge influence on an entire generation of American youth. The exhibition, organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery, is presented in an environment designed by cutting-edge architectural practice Atelier Bow-Wow, featuring life-size blowups of popular figures from the worlds of anime and manga within an intriguing sequence of spaces that evoke Tokyo’s clamorous cityscape. Co-curated by leading North American and Japanese specialists, KRAZY! gives visitors a direct experience of new forms of cultural production and offers fresh insight into the interdependence of three art forms of the future.
