The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art presents Enrique Chagoya: Adventures of Modernist Cannibals, an exhibit which highlights some of Chagoya’s most fascinating pieces: artists books that take their form from pre-Columbian codices and combine chine-collé, letterpress, lithography, and woodcut printing techniques to create rich, multi-layered compositions. His contemporary codices illustrate an imagined world in which the European conquest of the New World failed and the normative culture of the Americas is based in indigenous ideology.
