Translation/Interpretation/Caption Text: 

Censorship is not only one of the themes of  Lewis’s exhibits  but something he has experienced. Ironically, the exhibit that was censored most recently was about censorship itself. Last fall in Foxboro, “a publicly funded poster exhibit extolling press freedom has been removed from the Boyden Public Library following complaints over what some regarded as ‘graphic’ and ‘inappropriate” content,’ ” according to the Sun Chronicle from September 21, 2017.  

Another time a patron requested a poster be removed, citing it as “pro-Palestinian.”




Curator's note: 

This Palestine poster by the artist Pedro Laperal may be seen at the far right of the photo
