Margarita Cabrera: Intimate Economies
March 15 through April 27, 2013
2600 Live Oak, Dallas, TX 75204
The annual Maestros Tejanos series features the work of Margarita Cabrera, who first became known for her soft-sculptures of commercial products such as coffeemakers and blenders manufactured at US-owned maquiladoras in Mexico. In time, Cabrera’s concern for the role of laborers who build American products outgrew her interest in the objects themselves, and she began to organize projects that involved the work of artisans from immigrant communities.
