WHO/WHAT: View 400 years of Tokyo art with “Tokyo Stories,” a 90-minute film detailing one of the world’s greatest art capitals, from delicate woodblock prints to pop art posters, contemporary photography, manga, film and street art. The film is based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford and reveals how undergoing constant destruction and renewal over Tōkyō’s 400-year history has resulted in vibrant and interesting art. Stephen Salel, Honolulu Museum of Art’s curator of Japanese art will introduce the film on Friday, Aug. 18.
