The Maidens Sans Frontiers: Japanese Girl Culture Exhibition celebrates and investigates contemporary Japanese girl (shōjo) culture as it manifests in Australia. The exhibition showcases cosplay, fashion, photographs, video, graphics such as posters and postcards, books, manga, and collectibles such as dolls and figurines that have inspired Japanese Studies researchers in Australia.

The exhibit is free and open to all interested.

The Exhibit thanks the Japan Foundation and the University of Tasmania.
