The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Visiting Artists Program presents:
Wafaa Bilal: Distinguished Alumni Lecture Series Thursday, February 5, 6:00 p.m. The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Dr.
Iraqi-born artist Wafaa Bilal (MFA 2003) is renowned for provoking dialogue about international politics and internal dynamics through technology-driven art. Bilal's work is informed by the experience of fleeing his homeland and existing simultaneously in two worlds-his home in the "comfort zone" of the US and his consciousness of the "conflict zone" in Iraq. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha, Qatar, among others.
