KRAZY!* will be New York’s first major show dedicated to the Japanese
phenomenon of Anime, Manga, and Video Games—three forms of contemporary
visual art that are exercising a huge influence on an entire generation of
American youth. The exhibition, organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery, will
be presented in an environment designed by cutting-edge architectural
practice Atelier Bow-Wow, featuring life-size blowups of popular figures
from the worlds of anime and manga within an intriguing sequence of spaces
that evoke Tokyo’s clamorous cityscape. Co-curated by leading North American
and Japanese specialists, *KRAZY!* will give visitors a direct experience of
new forms of cultural production and offers fresh insight into the
interdependence of three art forms of the future.
