2100 Southeast Parkway, Arlington, TX 76018
“Lillian Young: Redaction” is a series of paintings, prints, and videos from Artist Lillian Young. Images from history are woven into her work, connecting the stories of African Americans with American history to reveal a more complex telling of that history. Young writes “Redaction is my way of creating a visual timeline that calls attention to the alarming (and ongoing) trend of redacting/editing American history. The painting, prints and video piece in the show touch on themes that are often “omitted” in mainstream African American History.”
Aqui/Ahora is a multi media exhibition showcasing a selection of Latino/x artists who are responding to the political and social climate of today. Through an investigative lens the artists delve into issues of commerce and labor, historical narratives seen through an altered perspective, activism and the inevitable cultural collision of our time. The exhibition presents artists Sara Cardona, Francisco Josue Alvarado Araujo, Jeffry Valadez, Melissa Gamez-Herrera, Giovanni Valderas and Fabiola Valenzuela. Each artist and their work creates historical markers that are telling of their place here and now as it relates to the Latino/x experience.
