Exhibition: Hayao Miyazaki
Hayao Miyazaki, the inaugural temporary exhibition of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, marks the first North American museum retrospective dedicated to the work of its namesake: the internationally celebrated artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki.
Hayao Miyazaki features more than 300 objects, including original imageboards, character designs, storyboards, layouts, backgrounds, posters, and cels from Studio Ghibli’s archives - including pieces on public view outside of Japan for the first time.
The exhibition explores themes in his films including environmentalism, female empowerment, post-war society, and Japanese spirituality and culture.
The exhibit runs from the Museum's opening, September 30, 2021, through June 5, 2022.
