Visualising Japanese Idols: Mika Ninagawa

Council Chamber, Sheffield Town Hall
Saturday 24th February, 3pm-5pm

Famous for her images of pop idols, flowers and goldfish all rendered in marvelous technicolour, Mika Ninagawa first rose to prominence as part of group of young female artists who emerging onto the Japanese art scene in the 1990s. Today her work is exhibited across the globe and we are thrilled to have her come to talk in Sheffield as part of Japan Now North. Director of Helter Skelter (2012) and Sakuran (2006), as well as numerous music videos including two for popular girl band AKB48, Ninagawa’s work is known for its vibrant colours and images. In this talk, accompanied by both films and images of her work, Ninagawa will talk about all aspects of her work to date and her upcoming projects.

Any tickets not claimed 15 minutes before the start of the event will be reallocated to those on the waiting list.
