A Celebration of Anime in San Francisco #ArtTuesday
At film schools across the world, there are nights, probably early on in the school year, when cries of “AKIRA!” and TETSUO!” And on those nights, everyone who had been initiated into the cult of Akira would nod sagely. Everyone who hasn’t seen Akira would, of course, be rightfully annoyed. Akira was the crossover hit that brought the world of Japanese animated films to the United States. And on July 14th, the Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco will hold SUGO! A TRIBUTE TO JAPANESE ANIMATION. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:
Featuring over sixty works of art from artists around the world, this exhibition is a testament to the influence and reach that the genre has had on generations of pop culture fans far and wide. This exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, illustrations and limited edition prints; offering one-of-a- kind works of art.
With adept storytelling and iconic characters, anime has transcended into a global phenomenon from what was once a very niche community. Like many forms of animation and entertainment, anime itself has grown up alongside its fans and over the past several decades has matured and evolved into a serious art form worthy of accolades, awards and cultural and societal acknowledgment.
