Enrique Chagoya will have a solo exhibition at Coulter Art Gallery at Stanford University.
The exhibition, titled Detention at the Border of Language, will be a survey of paintings, drawings, prints and multiples focusing on the idea of alienation and cultural identity. Chagoya, who is a full professor in Stanford's department of Art and Art History, says in a statement "I believe that everybody is an alien. I think that we all come from somewhere else. Nobody is pure ethnically. Those times are gone. Maybe there was never any purity in human history in terms of ethnicity because we are all part of the same genome... My experiences have made me realize that I am from everywhere and from nowhere." The exhibition will be on view through December 6, with an opening reception on Wednesday, October 23 from 4-6pm.
