If you've ever wished to come to one of our Times+ private views and have a taste of enjoying an exhibition away from the crowds but haven't been able to make it, then join us at this British Museum screening experience.

This fascinating new cinema event, British Museum presents: Hokusai, is a groundbreaking documentary and exclusive private view of the forthcoming British Museum exhibition Hokusai: beyond the Great Wave.

Filmed in Japan, the US and the UK, the film focuses on Hokusai’s work, life and times in the great, bustling metropolis of Edo, modern Tokyo. 

This is the first UK biography of Japan’s greatest artist. The film is introduced by arts presenter Andrew Graham-Dixon, and features artists David Hockney, Grayson Perry and Maggi Hambling. Using extraordinary close-ups and pioneering 8K Ultra HD video technology, Hokusai’s paintings and prints are examined by world experts who are at the forefront of digital art history.

Hokusai spent his life studying and celebrating our common humanity as well as deeply exploring the natural and spiritual worlds, using the famous volcano Mount Fuji as a protective presence and potential source of immortality. He knew much tragedy, was struck by lightning and lived for years in poverty, but never gave up his constant striving for perfection in his art. Hokusai influenced Monet, Van Gogh and other Impressionists, is the father of manga and the only artist with his own emoji.

Please note that this event is open to the general public but Times subscribers can enjoy our exclusive 2-for-1 ticket offer at each of the participating venues for these opening day screenings.

British Museum presents: Hokusai is released in cinemas across the UK from June 4 by Event Cinema specialist More2Screen.
