Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Walking down the pristine streets of Tokyo today, especially around the high-end shopping district of Ginza, you’d never believe that this spotless city was once at the center of a gritty and compelling cultural revolution.
Armani, in collaboration with IMA Magazine, presents “Tokyo 1970 by Japanese Photographers 9,” a stellar exhibition by renowned artists that revisits the glorious shift in Japanese culture. The art show on the ninth floor of the Armani/Ginza Tower, which closes this week, explores a fascinating look into the counter-culture community in Tokyo during a pivotal era in world history.
The exhibition also examines the turning point within straightforward photojournalism, which gave way to a new realm of storytelling that included a narrative into fashion, the arts, LGBT community, and outcasts.
The show includes photography by Hajime Sawatari, Issei Suda, Yoshihiro Tatsuki, Shuji Terayama, Masatoshi Naito, Takuma Nakahira, Daido Moriyama, Katsumi Watanabe, and Eikoh Hosoe, and includes 300 images, several of which have never been publicly viewed before.
