Middletown’s Wesleyan University presents ‘A Body in Fukushima — Recent Work’ exhibition via The Middletown Press

MIDDLETOWN — Eiko Otake and William Johnston’s latest exhibition “A Body in Fukushima: Recent Work” will be on view in the South Gallery at Wesleyan University’s Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, located at 283 Washington Terrace on the Wesleyan campus in Middletown, Connecticut, from Thursday through Feb. 15. New extended gallery hours are Tuesday, 12-7 p.m., and Wednesday through Sunday, 12-5 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.


Since their initial groundbreaking exhibition from the ongoing project “A Body in Fukushima” across all three of Wesleyan’s galleries from February through May 2015, Eiko Otake and William Johnston have visited Fukushima on two more occasions, in the summers of 2016 and 2017. The current exhibition will feature new work from these two visits to the area devastated by the earthquake, tsunami, and meltdowns of the Daiichi nuclear plant in 2011, as well as from Eiko’s performances during the fall of 2017 at the three different locations of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. At each of those events, Eiko performed throughout the hours the museum was open, projecting video of images from Fukushima which did not repeat throughout her residency.

The current exhibition at Wesleyan will feature the video footage she used during those performances, footage from the performances themselves, and several large-scale prints of photographs that Eiko and Johnston created during their two most recent trips to Fukushima.

Other exhibitions featuring work from “A Body in Fukushima” have been shown in numerous locations, including Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine (New York), Brown University, Columbia University, Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral (Santiago, Chile), the Gallery of Contemporary Art (Colorado Springs, Colorado), and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (Philadelphia). 


This exhibition is co-sponsored by the College of the Environment. For more information about “A Body in Fukushima” visit
