Memories of Tsukiji – Tokyo Premiere

11:00am – 8:00pm
¥1,500 (on the door)

What Happens to the Memories of a Place After It Has Disappeared?

The three artists behind Future Cities Tokyo have come together once again for their final 2019 show to create a mesmerizing and powerful exploration of the now-demolished Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo.

Ruben Fro, Cody Ellingham, and SJF have announced a small and intimate end-of-year show, MEMORIES OF TSUKIJI, using photogrammetry technology to explore what was formerly the world’s largest fish market, which closed its doors for the last time on October 6th 2018 and has since been totally demolished.

Memories of Tsukiji will be showing at ARTnSHELTER, a small art hotel and gallery near Samezu Station, Tokyo. The film will show every half-hour and lasts approximately 15 minutes with a brief interlude.
