Enrique Chagoya is the subject of a solo exhibition at Florida Gulf Coast University Art Galleries.

Everyone is an Alienígeno: Enrique Chagoya is the first survey of the artist’s work in Florida. The exhibition includes prints and paintings on his political and social activism, addressing issues such as national borders, immigration and cultural conflict. Chagoya states "...As an artist I have the right to make my own construction of history, not necessarily ideological but by using artistic license to construct a narrative, with humor and a more contemporary feel, that is different from the dominant history." The exhibition opens Thursday, October 17, on view through November 14. There will be an artist talk on opening night from 5-7pm.
