The Ashes Series: Chair, Wafaa Bilal, 2003-2013, archival inkjet photograph, 40 x 50 inches
Schmucker Art Gallery is excited to announce the most recent acquisition made possible by the Michael J. Birkner ’72 and Robin Wagner Art and Photography Acquisition Fund, with additional support provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for Middle East and Islamic Studies.
The acquisition, a critically acclaimed photograph titled Chair, is the work of Iraqi-born contemporary artist Wafaa Bilal. The photograph reveals the artist’s intense and haunting response to the mass-syndicated images released in the aftermath of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
