    Gallery Activation for 168:01 with artist Wafaa Bilal

    12pm - 3pm
    Artist Wafaa Bilal will visit NOMA to interpret his interactive installation 168:01 in the exhibition Bodies of Knowledge. The work comprises a large bookshelf filled with blank, white books which symbolizes the burning and looting of libraries in Baghdad during the 2003 American invasion of Iraq. Museum visitors are invited to transform the shelves from austere white to color by donating a book (for sale in the Museum Shop) that will be shipped to the College of Fine Arts at the University of Baghdad at the closing of the exhibition.
