Kimberly Butler’s “CENSORED” Photo Exhibition Kicks Off “Banned Books Week”
September 23, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDTFree
“CENSORED” features 21 provocative photos from Kimberly Butler’s forthcoming book of the same name. The photos she chose for this unique exhibition illustrate that “banning books silences stories” – the theme of this year’s “Banned Books Week” event – and that everyone needs to speak out against censorship. Butler’s “CENSORED” photos are “a personification of books that have all been banned at one time or another,” she explains, “with quotes from the books emblazoned across each person’s body.” She decided that an exhibition like “CENSORED,” a thought-provoking reminder of the dangers of censoring or banning books, is relevant now more than ever given the recent attacks by President Donald J. Trump on journalists, media organizations, and the First Amendment.
