Artist Enrique Chagoya has cited the biting social and political critique visualized in prints created by Francisco Goya and José Guadalupe Posada as vital inspirations for his depictions of political subjugation, corruption, and injustice. Curator Patricia Hickson untangles the absurd and often astonishing imagery that Chagoya devises in his printed work to explain his assessment of contemporary political, economic, and social life.
