Ken Gonzales-Day is a Los Angeles-based artist whose interdisciplinary practice considers the historical construction of race and the limits of representational systems, which range from lynching photographs to museum displays.This exhibition, curated by SCU Senior Lecturer Renee Billingslea, draws from his widely-acclaimed Erased Lynching series (2006).This series, and his book, Lynching In The West: 1850-1935 (2006), has slowly transformed our understanding of racialized violence in the United States and raised awareness of the history of lynching in California.
