Print Club: Prints of Enrique Chagoya – An Overview

5/25/2021 / 4:30pm - 5:30pm

Sarah Kirk Hanley, Executive Director of the Manhattan Graphics Center and leading expert on Enrique Chagoya's prints, will give a special presentation on Enrique Chagoya's etchings, artist's books, monotypes, and lithographs. Chagoya was the 2008 Des Moines Art Center Print Club Commissioned Print Artist, and The Art Center holds several Chagoya prints in the permanent collection.
 
Enrique Chagoya is a Bay Area painter and printmaker and a professor of Art Practice at Stanford University, and he uses political satire to question the nature of historical events, American history, and contemporary politics. Hanley has published several essays on the artist's editioned work and organized a retrospective of his prints in 2014. Hanley will discuss Chagoya's ongoing series of artist books and other print projects which are reinterpretations of Old Master images that tackle contemporary issues. This timely discussion lays the groundwork for the Goya work that will be featured at the Art Center this summer. 
 
Sarah Kirk Hanley is an independent consulting expert and critic in the greater NYC area; and she writes extensively for Art21 Magazine and Art in Print.
