'Enrique Chagoya: Detention at the Border of Language' on view at Coulter Art Gallery

Exhibition features paintings, drawings, prints and multiples by Stanford professor

A survey of paintings, drawings, prints, and multiples by artist and Stanford University professor Enrique Chagoya are on view at the Coulter Art Gallery, 55 Roth Way, Stanford.

Chagoya's work playfully explores identity, ethnicity, colonialism, immigration and other complex topics.

"So just as our different genes originally from different parts of the world inhabit our bodies peacefully without an internal civil war, I wonder if we as humans someday can do the same–live in peace with each other, celebrating our differences rather than being afraid of each other," he wrote in a press statement.

The exhibition runs through Dec. 6 and is open Tuesday-Sunday, noon-6 p.m.
