Gallery artist Enrique Chagoya's work will be featured in the upcoming exhibition How to Read El Pato Pascual: Disney’s Latin America and Latin America’s Disney, at the Schindler House and the Luckman Fine Arts Complex from September 9, 2017, through January 14, 2018. The MAK Center presents at these two locations "an exhibition of over 150 works by 48 Latin American artists who investigate and challenge nearly one hundred years of cultural influence between Latin America and Disney. Spanning painting, photography, graphic work, drawing, sculpture, video, documents, and the critical responses generated, the joint exhibition explores the idea that there are no clean boundaries between art, culture, and geography, and deconstructs how such notions are formed and disputed."

Said of Chagoya's work in the exhibition: "...[he] juxtaposes imagery from codices, indigenous iconography, and popular graphics that include Disney characters in a postcolonial critique..."

The exhibition is presented as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, and is curated by filmmaker/writer Jesse Lerner and artist Rubén Ortiz-Torres.
