Art At The Border: 21st Century Responses, curated by Kate Bonansinga, is a politicized art extravaganza.

The event is a part of a public series called Place/Displaced. Featured... [more]

By Wesley Pulkka / For the Journal | Sun, Nov 24, 2013 “John Deere Model #790 (#1)” by Margarita Cabrera is an awe-inspiring ceramic sculpture questioning the efficacy of international border laws and their potentially negative impact on human, plant and animal life.

  There's something undeniably, seductively American about the concept of the road trip. The phrase necessarily conjures images of vast expanses of land, endless open roads, lonely pit-stop diners, and garish neon motel signs forever winking VACANT into the night—images all uniquely American. It's no wonder; qualities inherited from our pioneering predecessors—a (sub)conscious desire to embrace uncertainty, pursue possibility, seek the unknown, and, of course, to be free—find perfect expression...

Los Angeles, CA - Margarita Cabrera's work is both contemporary and political.  It's pop art and soulful art.  It's infused with craft, knowlege of contemporary art, self awareness and personal history.  Her work is filled with what might seem like ironies, but her ideas and processes work together to produce honest and quite awe prevoking work. She uses craft processes of sewing and working with clay to reproduce common objects and machines which contain loaded meanings and uses.  Her work deal... [more]
