Even if you don’t know Studio Ghibli, you know Studio Ghibli. The Japanese animation house has one of the most distinctive aesthetic vibes around.
Headed by animation legend Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli has created renowned works inspired by the traditions of folklore and fantasy in Japanese art and to honour this, the Art Gallery Of NSW is dedicating an entire month to screening the studio’s most iconic films. Every Saturday afternoon between January 11 and February 8, 2020, the gallery will screen Ghibli films in its Domain Theatre for just $12 a session, which means you’ll get to see the likes of Spirited Away, Kiki's Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbour Totoro and Pom Poko—all on the big screen again.
And after you’ve seen the flicks you’ll be able to go see the Japan Supernatural exhibition at the Art Gallery (open until 8 March 2020) and it’s legendary hero-piece, the 30-metre long mural, comprised of 502 individual silkscreens by seminal artist Takashi Murakami.
