Daniel Arsham is presenting his third Pokémon exhibit, “A Ripple in Time,” starting in February across five different venues in Tokyo.

The first collaborative exhibit was first held in June to August 2020 in Shibuya in art galleries Nanzuka and Parco Museum Tokyo. The second exhibit, titled “Time Dilation” was held in January 2021 at Perroting in New York. Now, “A Ripple in Time” will showcase over 20 sculptures from the contemporary artist across a wide range of works including animations, paintings and drawings. “A Ripple in Time” will exhibit in five venues in Tokyo including NANZUKA UNDERGROUND, Nanzuka 2G, 311 ONZ by LDH kitchen, Roppongi Hill 66 Plaza and Sogetsu Plaza.
