The Doraemon Exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore is its first global showcase outside of Japan.
Check out Japan’s beloved Manga Doraemon, through the works of globally renowned contemporary Japanese artists such as Takashi Murakami, Mika Ninagawa and Yoshitomo Nara.
Presented by LEYOUKI and the National Museum of Singapore, the exhibition will bring together a selection of contemporary artworks that reinterprets Doraemon in our changing world and showcases its cultural impact on contemporary history.
A selection of Fujiko F Fujio Museum’s prized original drawings and sketches by the late Mr Fujiko will also be on display in a special dedicated feature titled “MANGA DORAEMON Original Drawings Exhibition”, a first-ever public showcase in Asia of the original Doraemon creator’s inventive and formative illustrations.
Doraemon may be older than some of us but it has been capturing the hearts of both the young and old. Since its birth in 1970, Doraemon has been capturing the imagination of audiences across the world and this exhibition invites visitors to consider their own personal memory of Doraemon.
The exhibition showcases Doraemon through the lens of 28 leading contemporary Japanese artists and arts groups, whose artworks respond to the theme of “Create Your Own Original Doraemon”. The exhibition will feature distinctive artworks that present the artists’ memories of Doraemon and their take on Japan’s beloved icon, through a mix of ideas, mediums and techniques that include paintings, sculptures, graphics and photography.
That’s not all. Collectors and fans of Doraemon can also look forward to an exclusive line-up of Doraemon merchandise, including the Fujiko F Fujio Museum’s and uniquely Singapore versions of original Doraemon collectables.
