Margarita Cabrera Gallery Art
Walter Maciel Gallery, Los Angeles, CA
Margarita Cabrera is a Mexican-American artist whose works often relate to issues involving border relations and immigration. She became first known for her soft vinyl sculptures, which invoke social commentary and are intended to raise political awareness of the immigration community. Cabrera’s works often include everyday objects such as cars, coffeemakers, and blenders. The use of these objects in her artworks alludes to the intensive labor in Mexican factories.
