The Art Galleries at TCU presents "Redaction," the BFA Thesis Exhibition of Lillian Young.

History is a vast expanse of different perspectives, as the saying goes there are two sides to every story.  However, some stories are told more than others or changed to suit those in power. In her BFA thesis show, Redaction, Lillian Young creates a visual timeline that calls attention to the alarming and ongoing trend of redacting/editing American history. Her paintings, video, and prints specifically look at moments and people from African American history that are not always considered in the mainstream narrative.

The stories of the people who fought for civil rights in the United States and continue to suffer inequality are pictured in this exhibition. Often history omits or “forgets” the cost that African Americans suffered in order to get America where it is today. Redaction is a visual reminder of some of the stories and moments in African American history that have been taken out of the mainstream narrative. In highlighting these moments, Young connects these moments to the social anxiety felt today about the rise in racism, loss of representation in history, and her own struggle of continuing to fight for equality.

The exhibit will be on view November 26-30.
