MANGARO & HETA-UMA exhibitions
Marseille, Sete, France
Panorama of Japanese graphic scene
The organization of a double exhibition, which gathers three generations of Japanese artists that have influenced the international art scene from the 60s up to now. This project focuses on underground and avant-garde Manga in the field of visual arts, with popular and original drawings, forms, which has been edited by committed publishers. This recognition started in 1964 when Garo Japanese publishers discovered and edited underground and iconoclast graphic artists. Nowadays this legacy can be seen internationally for instance with the Raw, a review published by Art Spiegelman.
This double exhibition entitled Mangaro and Heta-Uma is divided in two parts: one in Marseille (France) at la Friche la Belle de Mai and one in Sète (France) at the MIAM (International Museum of Modest Art) in October 2014.
The first chapter is the exhibition Mangaro which displays a series of original Garo magazines. The second, Heta-Uma is the “live” version of the first chapter. The exhibition presents the pre-punk and post-hippie Japanese creation, by bringing together objects, posters and specific productions such as graffiti or performances.
