Enrique Chagoya is included in a group exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Ancient History of the Distant Future juxtaposes PAFA’s storied permanent collection with thirteen contemporary artists whose work engages with or reacts to art history in some capacity. In a suite of eight etchings titled “Return to Goya’s Caprichos," Chagoya revisits Goya’s series of Caprices from the late 1700s, using its critical perspective on 18th century Spainish society as a jumping off point to analyze today's history in a similar vein. The exhibition is organized by Jodi Throckmorton in collaboration with Kadist Art Foundation. On view through February 2, 2020.
