Teresa Margolles: We Have a Common Thread

UTEP Rubin Center for the Visual Arts

January 19 - April 22, 2017

For this exhibition, Teresa Margolles gave artist-embroiderers access to fabric that had "been marked through contact with the body of a woman, or in some cases a man, who had suffered a violent death." The embroiderers then created patterns on the fabric to "trigger a conversation about the violence and social problems plaguing their respective communities."
