Margarita Cabrera: It is Impossible to Cover the Sun with a Finger

Dallas Contemporary

“Es Imposible Tapar el Sol con un Dedo,” translates to “It is Impossible to Cover the Sun with a Finger.” The saying is a common metaphor within Latin American communities, used to show how reality can only partially be disguised. In other words, one can block the sun with his or her finger, but it will continue to shine. This survey exhibition highlights Cabrera’s ongoing exploration of sociopolitical issues such as migration, labor practices, and economic empowerment. As an immigrant from Mexico, Cabrera’s work conceptually and formally considers the impact of border politics.
