NEW YORK (AP) - An exhibition opening in New York City on the fifth anniversary of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami features photographs, video and other artworks in response to the tragedy.

“In the Wake: Japanese Photographers Respond to 3/11” opens March 11 at the Japan Society Gallery and runs through June 12.

Also on view, for the first time in New York, will be a room-sized installation dedicated to a project by Munemasa Takahashi. The artist recovered over 750,000 personal photos from the debris, identifying and returning tens of thousands of them to their owners. About 1,000 are part of his installation.

Yoko Ono’s ongoing art installation, “Wish Tree,” also is part of the exhibition. It invites visitors to fasten a white tag bearing their wishes for the world’s future to an apple tree.
