Tokyo: Art & Photography will explore Japan’s capital city through the varied and vibrant arts it has generated over 400 years, from its beginnings as the headquarters of the Tokugawa shoguns in the early 1600s to the sprawling modern metropolis and dynamic centre of art, photography and design it is today.

The exhibition will focus on Tokyo’s urban environment, the everyday lives and leisure activities of the people living in the city, and its dynamic role as a centre of artistic innovation and self-expression. Historic and contemporary works in different artistic media range from woodblock prints and paintings to photographs and moving image works, as well as a number of new commissions by contemporary artists.
