Yokai: Ghosts & Demons of Japan
On display through Jan 16, 2022 at the Museum of International Folk Art
The exhibition, Yôkai: Ghosts & Demons of Japan is on display through January 16, 2022. Special exhibition highlights include: narrative arts such as Edo period scroll paintings and woodblock prints; contemporary folk art that depicts yôkai and illustrates their eerie tales; ghost and demon characters from classical noh and kabuki performances; and special festival events. Toys, games, comic books, and anime connect the past to the present, and the classical to the popular in terms of visual arts and culture. In addition to participatory gallery crafts, the exhibition includes an immersive, family-friendly obake yashiki (a Japanese “monster house”), a popular form of entertainment in Japanese amusement parks.
