This event has ended.

This exhibition combines the artistic worlds of Antoni Gaudi, the groundbreaking architect responsible for sites including the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and Casa Milà, and the manga artist Takehiko Inoue, who is known for popular works such as “Slam Dunk”, “Vagabond”, and “Real”. Inoue has illustrated Gaudi’s youth in the countryside south of Barcelona, a time when he was called by the nickname “Tonet”. Appointed by the Spanish ambassador as a project to commemorate the 400th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Spain in December 2013, Inoue, who has deep ties with Spain, recreates Gaudi’s universe. Inoue’s works are also displayed along with drawings, furniture, models, and materials related to Gaudi.
