Bay Area artist Enrique Chagoya will speak about his recent work, which focuses on immigration and colonialism. He relies on two ideas—“reverse anthropology” and “reverse modernism”—which are intended to force his audience rethink the way they see the world.

Enrique Chagoya, a highly accomplished and revered artist, creates art that challenges stereotypes and established history, turning conventional attitudes upside down. Drawing from his experiences living on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border in the late 70’s, and in Europe in the late 90’s, he juxtaposes secular, popular, and religious symbols in order to address the cultural clash between the United States, Latin America and the world. He His use of familiar pop icons creates friendly points of entry to help rethink complex issues.
