TICKETS


The exciting exhibition is running for a limited time only, at the Art Gallery NSW, from now until the 8th March 2020. Adults are charged at $25 and children are charged at $12.

A fun and mesmerising experience, where visitors are introduced to Japanese folklore, from ghosts, shapeshifters, spirits and mischievous goblins. At the entrance, visitors are given the choice to carry an audio device (highly recommend), which senses the visitor when entering each gallery room. Different music is played, setting and enhancing the experience. Some artworks have an audio recording, which provides visitors information and stories for each artwork. I loved the little activities placed on some artwork labels, for the children to interact with the artwork or exhibition.

The amazing Japanese artists you will find there are: Takashi Murakami, Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, Chiho Aoshima, Fuyuko Matsui and Miwa Yanagi.

Through this immersive exhibition, I’ve definitely discovered and appreciate the Japanese folklore and the artists’ work behind each piece. My favourite highlight artworks are on this post, but to be honest, there was much more that I wanted to take a photo of. Take your time to read each artwork description and try it with the audio device, for an enhanced experience.

With over 180 works and each gallery having their own unique theme, you will be hypnotised by the stories behind each artwork and like me… wanting to comeback for more!
