shibuya-san makes connections between people like you and the city as a meeting place for creativity. It is a platform where different perspectives and viewpoints can come together.

In this exhibition we chose six pieces made by artists who had an artist residency in Tokyo before Covid-19. The pieces express the influence Tokyo had on them as well as how the city inspired them. They are very different views on the same urban realm. 

The artists stayed, worked and showed their work at Almost Perfect, a creative residence based in Kojima, Taito-ku. The building is a 100-year-old former rice shop, filled with traditional details such as sliding paper doors and tatami floors. Almost Perfect is now place of inspiration for creatives from all over the world.

We hope seeing these views on Tokyo inspires you to consider your own relationship to the city. 

Thank you for your visit.
