Space in Between is a collaboration between artist Margarita Cabrera, the Arizona State University Art Museum and Desert Botanical Garden. Cabrera’s project is a continuation of her on-going work with Latino communities.
Space in Between centers on the creation of artworks and promotion of cultural dialogues revolving around themes related to community, craft, immigration, cultural identity, labor practices and sustainability.
Cabrera will lead workshops with communities from the Arizona region to create soft sculptures of desert plants made from recycled Border Patrol uniforms and embroidered with personal stories of immigration. The artwork will be displayed at the Desert Botanical Garden and will be the launch for a national traveling exhibition the following year.
