The catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that struck
northeast Japan on March 11, 2011 and triggered
an on-going nuclear crisis has been met with an
overwhelming reaction in the arts, marking a profound
shift in the contemporary Japanese cultural landscape.
Opening five years to the day since 3/11, Japan
Society’s presentation of In the Wake reveals a stunning
range of photographic responses to the disaster and
the artistic paths that lie ahead as Japan continues
to rebuild. With over 90 photographic works by 17
of Japan’s leading visionaries, the exhibition invites
viewers to experience the power of art to
transcend unspeakable tragedy, forging a universal
link that connects Japan to New York and beyond.


This exhibition was organized by the
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
