"Current Exhibit: Collisions Between Historical Visions: The Art of Enrique Chagoya

September 20, 2010 through January 2011

Collisions Between Historical Visions is an exhibition of work−including painting, drawing, sculpture, and printmaking (digital and traditional)−created by Stanford University Art and Art History Professor Enrique Chagoya. Many of the pieces are informed by Chagoya’s experiences throughout his life, including his time in Europe and on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. By juxtaposing secular, popular, and religious symbols from various places and periods−including pre-Columbian mythology, Western religious iconography, ethnic stereotypes, ideological propaganda, and American popular culture−Chagoya’s art frequently addresses cultural clashes over both space and time. This dynamic drives much of his work:

The art becomes a product of collisions between historical visions, ancient and modern, marginal and dominant paradigms - a thesis and an anti-thesis that end in a synthesis in the mind of the viewer.
In addition to winning the 2010 Kala Master Artist’s Award from the Kala Institute, a Bay Area leader in printmaking experimentation over the last forty years, Chagoya will serve as the Navigation Press distinguished visiting artist at George Mason University during October 2010."
