A number of sources are reporting that animation giant Studio Ghibli is preparing an exhibition that will showcase its iconic animations in exhibitions arriving in Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan this summer.
The show will be highlighting the works of Toshio Suzuki, a long-time friend, and collaborator of Hayao Miyazaki. Fans will be able to view films through the lens of Suzuki with a range of installations for an interactive experience.
The space will feature a large bookshelf housing 8,800 of Suzuki’s publications, including those he worked on at a manga magazine before he joined Studio Ghibli. The bathhouse from Spirited Away will also receive a life-size installation exclusively in Tokyo.
You can head over to the official website to learn more. The Toshio Suzuki and Ghibli Exhibition will run from April 23 to June 19 at the Museum of Kyoto, and from July 1 to September 7 at Tokyo’s Warehouse Terrada.
A similar exhibition was recently organized in Los Angeles.
Studio Ghibli is a Japanese animation film studio, founded in 1985 by Hayao Miyazaki and Takahata Isao known for its high-quality artistry and unique storytelling.
The films touch on real-life topics that are relevant, emotional, and heavy on immersive realism.
