The Samurai Re-Imagined: From Ukiyo-e to Anime uses the image of the iconic samurai warrior to explore the roots of the popular Japanese art forms of manga (graphic novels) and anime (animation). By juxtaposing traditional and contemporary works of art -- woodblock prints with animation cels, for example -- the exhibition creates a visual history demonstrating the links between fine art and popular culture.
The exhibit includes woodblock prints and paintings along with samurai swords and accoutrements from Pacific Asia Museumís collection; plus animation productions cels and drawings, motion picture stills, posters, toys, and comic books and manga on loan from private collections.
