Rising art star Margarita Cabrera presents her trademark soft sculptures created by laborers in an exhibition that, according to the press release, "navigate[s] within a conversation," "presents a dichotomy," and explores "the complexity of the socio-economic issues of migrant labor and their implicit gender associations." Whoa. A tall order. Let’s hope she’s up to the task.
Jenny Schlief, "a white female conceptual artist" (geez) creates a new body of work consisting of rim drawings and a rim sound sculpture/iPod dock. I’m not sure we know what a rim drawing is, but if we know Schlief, it should be nasty.
Fidel Ordonez, a self-taught painter born in Mexico City, presents a large installation built with references to geometric abstraction. Sandwiched between the conceptual heavy-lifting of Cabrera and the multi-culti gender-bending tomfoolery of Schlief, getting any attention at all will be a feat in itself.
