This exhibition presents a range of work by Margarita Cabrera, which focus on border relations and celebrate Mexican heritage. Margarita Cabrera: Blurring Borders highlights the artist’s practice of engaging communities in the artmaking process. Cabrera’s work documents the experiences, struggles, and achievements of those who have found their way, often through migration and exceptional sacrifice, to new places where they now contribute meaningfully within their communities.

Margarita Cabrera: Blurring Borders is organized for the McNay Art Museum by René Paul Barilleaux, Head of Curatorial Affairs; Lauren Thompson, Assistant Curator; and Edward Hayes, Exhibitions Senior Manager/Registrar. 

Lead funding is most generously provided by Ben Foster in memory of his wife, Raye B. Foster. Major funding is provided by the Elizabeth Huth Coates Foundation of 1992.
