About

Take a glimpse into the colourful contemporary culture of nineteenth century Japan in an intriguing exhibition of EdoPop prints.

 

These colourful wood-block prints, featuring urban celebrities, actors, sports champions, fashion icons and villains, were ‘mass produced’ and eagerly sought after by fans of Edo’s (now Tokyo) pop culture.

 

EDOPOP is a lively and convincing visual record of the humour, compassion, anxieties and emotions of this great city.
