DC Exhibition in Japan 2021–2022
THE ART OF DC –THE DAWN OF SUPER HEROES to be Held in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka
DC Comics is a long-established American comic book company that has created numbers of heroic comic series and characters such as Superman, Batman and Wonder Women. Not only superheroes but DC has produced some iconic supervillains, too including Joker, Harley Quinn and Lex Luthor. As well as comic books, DC’s movie franchise is highly popular worldwide and has released numbers of high-grossing movies until today.
DC comic books and movies have many fans across the world, and Japan is not an exception. In 2021, Japan’s first-ever DC exhibition will be held in Tokyo, then it will be touring around the country until spring next year.
The DC exhibition “THE ART OF DC –THE DAWN OF SUPER HEROES” has been touring around the world since 2017, which first started at Art Ludique-LeMusēe in Paris then moved to Abu Dhabi, UK, Poland and Hong Kong, and it’s finally arriving to Japan in 2021.
THE ART OF DC –THE DAWN OF SUPER HEROES exhibition will take place at Tokyo City View Sky Gallery in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo during 2021 summer.
More than 400 items will be displayed at this special exhibition including valuable comics, movie synopsis, and costumes and props from the movies. The exhibition unravels the 80-year long history of DC, which has been changing its shape with the times and continues to create original characters and stories.
After Tokyo, the exhibition will movie its location to Fukuoka, followed by Osaka and Nagoya. So even if you miss the one in Tokyo, you will still have a chance to visit one of these locations in Japan until spring 2022!
