From the city that brought you Godzilla movies, the 1964 Olympics, and the conceptualist crone who broke up the Beatles comes a two-decade survey of urban creative ferment. Beginning in the 1950s, Tokyo transformed itself from war-torn ruin into an international center for art and culture. This show features some of those responsible: among others, artists Nakamura Hiroshi and Ay-O; photographers Moriyama Daido and Tomatsu Shomei; and architects Tange Kenzo and Isozaki Arata. There's also that screamer Yoko Ono. Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd Street, moma.org
