PROLOGUE: DISCUSSION & BOOK SIGNING WITH EIKO OTAKE
DISCUSSION AND BOOK SIGNING WITH EIKO OTAKE
Chapman Foundations Recital Hall
November 29 | 7pm-8:30pm
In a career that has included performances at the most prestigious art centers in the world, Eiko Otake now focuses on the development of work inspired by her six visits to the nuclear fallout zones around the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant in Japan. By placing her body in-situ in sometimes unusual locations around the world, she creates emotional, evocative and often jarring juxtapositions, encouraging the viewer to witness and assess their relationship to surroundings. Ten years after the disaster, Eiko has shown a rare continuity in pursuing a theme of nuclear matters and the possibility of an artist’s involvement in the issue. She will join us for a talk and signing of her new book, A Body in Fukushima, and to work in residence with our dance students.
This event is free and open to the public but registration is requested. For more information contact Kevin Landis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
