Sal Garcia talking Enrique Chagoya

Opening night of Enrique Chagoya's "Borderlandia" at the Berkeley art museum.
Artist Sal Garcia gave me a brief, personal statement about one of Chagoya's paintings, which are on view at the Berkeley art museum from February 13 to May 18, 2008. The first major museum retrospective of the work of Mexico-born, San Francisco based artist Enrique Chagoya. Chagoya’s subject matter draws on his personal history and reflects his abiding interest in the complex, overlapping cultural histories of Mexico and the United States.
