Pop-culture literacy alert: A significant traveling exhibit of Japanese comics--shojo manga, to be precise [link] --has been installed at UNM's Masley Gallery (105 Masley Hall ) for a week now, and you probably don't even know where Masley Hall is. Neither did I. [link] According to curator Masami Toku, the exhibition will “introduce the innovations in visual composition that were invented in girl's manga.” [link] She'll elaborate tomorrow in person (Tuesday, Jan. 31) at 4 p.m. and a panel discussion will follow. Media geeks and magical girls get in free. [link] Gallery hours: M-F 11am-4pm.
