WIRED READERS’ NIGHT AT JAPAN HOUSE

WIRED is collaborating with Japan House for a special event with internationally acclaimed manga artist URASAWA Naoki on Wednesday 5 June 2019 at Japan House London. The exclusive one-nighter will offer audiences a rare chance to see Urasawa bring his art to life in a live drawing demonstration, and engage in discussion on his career to date in an intimate setting. Expect to have your expectations of what manga is, and who it is for, shattered by one of the industry’s greatest living artistic talents.

This summer Japan House London presents an exhibition on the popular form of Japanese illustrated literature - manga - through the work of manga artist, URASAWA Naoki. Running from 5 June until 28 July 2019, the ‘This is Manga – the Art of Urasawa Naoki’ exhibition immerses visitors in the iconic Japanese art form and highlights the breadth of Urasawa’s narrative styles with a display of selected stories from some of his major works, including ‘YAWARA!’, ‘MONSTER’ and ‘20th Century Boys’.

The WIRED reader’s night at Japan House London features WIRED writer Matt Kamen in conversation with Urasawa Naoki. Join us to find out more about one of Japan’s greatest manga artists and for the opportunity to ask him questions yourself. Co-presented by Japan House, the event includes after-hours’ access to the ‘This is Manga’ exhibition and a networking reception with canapes and Japanese drinks.

What is Japan House?
If stereotypical images of Hello Kitty or samurai spring forth, Japan House aims to challenge those perceptions and expand your horizons.

A new cultural centre based in Kensington, Japan House London shines a spotlight on the best art, design, technology and culture to come from Japan. Along with partner sites in Los Angeles and São Paulo, its goal is to bring the breadth of Japan’s history and the dynamism of its present and future to wider international attention through exhibitions, performances and installations showcasing the work of the country’s finest performers and creators – alongside amazing food and exclusive shopping.
