“Enrique Chagoya: Reverse Anthropology” Exhibition

December 7 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until January 27, 2019

$6

Enrique Chagoya (American, born Mexico, 1953) is an internationally recognized printmaker who teaches at Stanford University in California. Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition features a range of Chagoya’s deceptively subversive prints that explore issues of immigration, colonialism, the economy, the government, the commodification of art, and the recurring subject of cultural clash that continues to riddle contemporary life.

Chagoya’s provocative works incorporate diverse symbolic elements from Pre-Columbian mythology, Western religious iconography, and American pop culture. He has frequently used his prints and codices to critique how history has been written by cultures that have colonized or obliterated others. Chagoya has termed this “reverse anthropology,” and he uses complex visual and textual narratives to reexamine traditional accounts about culture and inheritance.

Drawn from the extensive collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, the Chagoya exhibition has been organized as a companion exhibition to Witness: Themes of Social Justice in Contemporary Printmaking and Photography
