Academy Museum Unveils Details of Inaugural Exhibition, Dedicated to Hayao Miyazaki

The retrospective will explore the Japanese animator’s six-decade career featuring popular Studio Ghibli films.

As the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures makes its way to opening (hopefully) next April, it has now unveiled details of its inaugural exhibition, which will be dedicated to Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki. The retrospective will cover the Studio Ghibli co-founder’s six-decade-long career featuring popular films like Spirited Away and Castle in the Sky.

The exhibition will mark North America’s first-ever celebrating the acclaimed creative. “Miyazaki’s genius is his power of remembering what he sees,” Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki shared in a statement. “He opens the drawers in his head to pull out these visual memories to create characters, landscapes and structures that are bursting with originality.” Curated by Jessica Niebel and J. Raúl Guzmán, the show will be divided into seven sections of around 300 storyboards, character artworks and more, providing viewers a closer look behind how the legendary films came to be.

Some highlights include Miyazaki’s early works such as the TV series Heidi, Girl of the Alps (1974) and his first feature film, Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro (1979). Additionally, viewers will experience an immersive space where they can lie down in an installation inspired by a scene in Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989).

The Academy Museum’s inaugural Hayao Miyazaki show is slated to commence on April 30, 2021. Additional exhibitions lined up include Regeneration: Black Cinema 1898–1971, a show dedicated to the history of Black filmmaking in the United States.
