Chihiro Art Museum of Tokyo, 4-7-2 Shimo-shakujii, Nerima City, Tokyo
2019-5-11 - 2019-7-28

Shaun Tan is an Australian artist. He released his animated short “The Lost Thing” in 2010, earning him an Academy Award. His wordless graphic novel “Arrival” made big waves when it was published in 2006, and has since been released in 23 languages. There are many ardent fans in Japan as well. This exhibition, aided by Tan’s full cooperation, is his first large-scale solo event in Japan, featuring everything from the original picture book version of "The Lost Thing" up to his most recent work, and includes the original drawings, practice work and sketches, film works, and 3D pieces in the shape of strange creatures, for a total of around 130 exhibits.
