Stanford’s Coulter Art Gallery hosts Enrique Chagoya exhibition

An exhibition of the recent work of Enrique Chagoya, professor of art and art history, is on view at the Coulter Art Gallery in the McMurtry Building through Dec. 6. The survey of paintings, drawings and prints, titled Detention at the Border of Language, spans two decades in Chagoya’s career and is presented by the Department of Art and Art History.
The works date from 1998 and include five, completed this year, that have never been exhibited before. In his work, Chagoya says he uses satire and humor to “open the doors to thought-provoking situations we all experience.” Creating art, he says, helps him exorcise anxieties and think about positive changes.
