Enrique Chagoya Lecture, Oct. 14 at 1pm, Yale University

<b>Enrique Chagoya</b>, a Mexican-born book artist currently residing in

of Sterling Memorial Library, 120 High Street, New Haven, CT.&nbsp; This

Chagoya's work illustrates and addresses issues dealing with cultural
clashes and historical interpretation.&nbsp; From the viewpoint of a
person who has experienced life in multiple cultures, Chagoya
appropriates images from varying cultures and juxtaposes them to
highlight the differences, yet also create a fusion.&nbsp; Chagoya's book
in the exhibition uses images from 19th century European prints, American
comic books, and Mayan symbols, among others, to comment on the politics
surrounding the U.S/Mexico border.<br>
The lecture is in conjunction with the current exhibition in the Arts of
the Book Collection in Sterling Memorial Library.&nbsp; <i>Poetics
Politics and Song:&nbsp; Contemporary Latin American/Latino(a) Artists'
Books</i> was curated by D. Vanessa Kam, 2000 Kress Fellow in Art
Librarianship.&nbsp; The exhibition can be viewed in person Monday,
Wednesday, Friday from 9 am to 1 pm and Tuesday, Thursday from 1pm to 5
pm through November 27. <br>
