After a successful run last fall at Gallery ʻIolani Windward Community College, Crossing Cultures returns to the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaiʻi Community Gallery for another showing! The exhibition has some exciting updates and additions including a new cosplay costume and recent work from doujinshi artist Kyunyo.

The Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i presents Crossing Cultures: The Art of Manga in Hawai‘i. This exhibition brings together Hawai‘i based artists and writers who use manga to explore their cross-cultural experiences—telling stories that examine the history and cultures of Hawai‘i. Manga is a distinctive form of Japanese comics known for its dynamic graphics and diverse narratives. This exhibit will feature Hawai’i artists and writers who use manga—a distinctive form of Japanese comic art. The opening reception for JCCH members and invited guests will be held on Friday, May 2, 5:30pm. There will also be a walkthrough with the curator, Brady Evans held at 6pm.

The exhibition and related events are free and open to the public.
