The Lighthouse to host exhibition

The Lighthouse, Scotland’s centre for architecture and design in Glasgow, is hosting an exhibition next month dedicated to Japanese graphic talent, featuring 75 commercial posters created during the 1990s. Work includes Katsumi Asaba’s poster for 1995 film Sharaku (pictured) and a poster for Ueno Zoo in Tokyo by Kazumasa Nagai, which features a lion in symbolised form. The work ‘combines the best of traditional Japanese and western aesthetics’, says a Lighthouse spokeswoman. The show runs from 5-30 September in the Young Designers Gallery, and is co-organised by the Japan Foundation.
