Wesleyan Fall 2015

Wesleyan Fall 2015

The 2015-2016 academic year marks the second year of Eiko's three-year appointment at Wesleyan University as a visiting artist.

During her first year, Eiko and her collaborator, history professor and photographer William Johnston, presented a three gallery photo exhibition A Body in Fukushima, . Eiko also premiered A Body in a Library , a part of her A Body in Places.

This year Eiko will be co-teaching a 1.5 credit course on the atomic bomb with Johnston.

This is the fourth time they are co-teaching a course. They will also continue their artistic collaboration this semester, as they design another photo exhibition for Santiago a Mil, an international dance festival in Chile where Eiko will perform in January 2016. William and Eiko will extend their collaboration beyond A Body in Fukushima by creatively archiving her solo performance series at Wesleyan and in Chile. 

Performing this series of A Body in Places, Eiko continues her exploration of an artist's solitude and a human's fragility. Since 2005, Wesleyan University has been and continues to be a laboratory for her artistic research. She also enjoys teaching at Wesleyan as a working artist.
