Jewish Manga Art
March 20 - April 28
The Jewish Museum of Venice inaugurates an unusual, innovative but with very ancient references exhibition: the Manga tables on Jewish subjects designed by Thomas Carlo Lay.
The exhibition, commissioned by the Jewish Museum of Venice, the Jewish Community of Venice and CoopCulture, under the patronage of the Consulate of Japan in Milan and the AEPJ, the European Association for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage, will be open to the public from March 20 to April 28, 2019, during the same hours of the museum.
Thomas Lay is the only western mangaka raised in Japan and first assistant of Yumiko Igarashi, the famous author of Candy Candy, a cult cartoon for millions of teenagers from Italy and around the world from the late ’70s until 1997. A true mass phenomenon whose traits we can find in the monographic exhibition The beauty of rigor that exhibits several paintings that represent images typical of Jewish iconography through the style and technique of manga art.
