Surviving Paradise/Sobreviviendo el Paraíso features new and significant recent work by Enrique Chagoya highlighting cross-border themes that he has explored throughout his artistic career: immigration, colonization, political struggle, economics, and cultural imposition. Through masterful drawings, prints, books, and editioned objects, Chagoya brings an analytical and often darkly humorous eye to bear on the world around us.
