UNM gShojo Manga! Girl Power!h

A traveling exhibit of Japanese girl's comic artists, will show at Masley Art Gallery, Masley Hall, at the University of New Mexico, Jan. 23 -
Feb. 10, 2006. The university's Art Education program is sponsoring the exhibit. Japanese "manga" (comics) are cultural phenomena that began forty years ago. This exhibit focuses on the unique visual characteristics and narratives of 23 major "shojo mangaka" (girls' manga artists). These drawings and narratives are designed to provoke discussions about issues of gender, representation and themes about women's aspirations and dreams in Japanese culture. Influenced by American comics and Disney animation, contemporary Japanese manga started as an inexpensive entertainment for children in the devastated post-war Japan. Popular children's entertainment such as Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh are based on Japanese manga.
