10th Anniversary of the National Art Center, Tokyo
Exhibition of Shinkai Makoto
The “Exhibition of Shinkai Makoto”, covering his artworks from “Voices of a Distant Star” to “Your Name,” will be held in The National Art Center, Tokyo from Saturday, November 11th to Monday, December 18th, 2017 (Organizers: The National Art Center, Tokyo, The Asahi Shimbun, TOHO CO., LTD, TV Asahi Corporation,CoMix Wave Films Inc., and AMUSE INC.).
Makoto Shinkai debuted commercially with his short-film, “Voices of a Distant Star” in 2002. For 15 years since then, he has created the most refined “stories of a man and a woman who cross their paths in a beautiful and magnificent world”, and has received many people’s attention without regard to ages or borders.
This exhibition will introduce Shinkai’s journey by showing not only his precious production materials such as storyboards, plannings, drawings, arts, and visual images, but also objects that enable visitors to experience Shinkai’s world.
We can approach the charm of Shinkai’s animations thoroughly with these lined-up works : “Voices of a Distant Star” — self-production; “The place promised in our early days” — the first full-length work produced with professional staff and awarded at Mainichi Film Concours; “5 Centimeters Per Second” — which people are talking aboutenthusiastically even now; “Children Who Chase Lost Voices” — a true young adult fantasy work; “The Garden of Words” — visual literature of the digital era; “your name.” — which won record-breaking success right after being released last year.
In this exhibition visitors will be able to enjoy and understand even more of Shinkai and his artworks.
