Logan Lecture: Margarita Cabrera

Known for her soft sculptures that use a pop art sensibility to address the histories and contemporary politics of migrant labor between the Mexican and US borders, Margarita Cabrera has developed a unique style that explores the interplay between craft, contemporary art, and her personal journey of growing up as a "border girl."

 

Cabrera was born in Monterry, Mexico and spent much of her childhood in Mexico City before relocating with her family to El Paso, Texas as a young girl. She was old enough to have strong memories of this transition of language, culture and traditions. More recently, Cabrera's interest in border politics and a return to her own Mexican roots has inspired a series of performance and community-based projects that aim to give a voice to DREAMers* and other under-represented populations.

 

Since receiving her BFA from Hunter College in 1997, Cabrera has participated in numerous group exhibitions, such as Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement at LACMA in 2008. More recently she has had solo exhibitions at the Mexican American Cultural Center, Austin, TX and the El Paso Museum of Art.
