The Doraemon Exhibition Singapore 2022 will be on from 5 Nov 2022 to 5 Feb 2023.

Not to be confused with the Fujiko F. Fujio Museum, also known as Doraemon Museum, in Kawasaki, Japan, this Doraemon Exhibition was first organised in 2002 in Japan, and has only toured cities within the country. Supported by the National Museum of Singapore, this will be its first overseas exhibition.

The last Doraemon-related event in Singapore was the Doraemon movie in 2020 — Stand By Me Doraemon 2.

The Doraemon Exhibition will feature the late Doraemon creator Mr Fujiko’s prized drawings and sketches, as well as interpretations of the popular cartoon character by contemporary artists.

Firstly, the exhibition will showcase a selection of original drawings and sketches by Mr Fujiko. These pieces are borrowed from the Fujiko F Fujio Museum as a specially dedicated feature of the exhibition, to commemorate its first-ever public showcase outside Japan.

On top of Mr Fujiko’s original artworks, this exhibition will also display the work of 28 leading contemporary Japanese artists and art groups. The selection of artworks aim to reinterpret Doraemon in our ever changing world, as well as underscore its cultural impact since its creation in 1970.

The contemporary artists include Takashi Murakami, Mika Ninagawa, and Yoshitomo Nara.
