In Japan, divinities and supernatural beings are omnipresent. Throughout the year, during masked rituals, costumes are worn to ask them for protection, riches and happiness. The exhibition creates links between the contemporary photographs of Charles Fréger, which depict a large number of ritual masked figures, and the museum's Japanese collections....
Allow yourself to be guided through this island of spirits and monsters, from the foundations of Japanese spirituality to modern-day practices, such as manga, cosplay and video games.
This exhibition is part of Franco-Japanese commemorations and the associated programme 'Japonismes 2018'
