It has been five years since the Great East Japan Earthquake struck the Tohoku region on March 11, 2011. When the following tsunami swept through the region, thousands of lives were lost and numerous valuable pieces of artwork, architecture and crafts were destroyed.
Organized by the Tokyo University of Arts, the University Art Museum is showing 70 works created by 54 different artists from Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima prefectures. This special exhibition revisits the tragedy through repaired paintings and sculptures, photography and new original artworks, and is being held to help support the ongoing reconstruction process.
