Tokyo Stories

Exhibition on Screen

Performance

Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, ‘Tokyo Stories’ spans 400 years of incredibly dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets.

In Detail

The exhibition was a smash-hit five-star success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum.

The film uses the exhibition as a launchpad to travel to Tokyo itself, and explore the art and artists of the city more fully.

A beautifully illustrated and richly detailed film, looking at a city which has undergone constant destruction and renewal over its 400-year history, resulting in one of the most vibrant and interesting cities on the planet.
