Meet the artist at an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, June 27 at the Proyectos Gallery on the museum's second floor. Admission to the reception is free and open to all.
Additionally, the artist will discuss his work in a Contemporary Art Month lecture from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, July 7 in the Proyectos Gallery.
A UTSA M.F.A. degree recipient, Cabrera examines in his exhibition the cultural issues of the bullfighting tradition. According to the artist, removing the subjects (the bull or matador) from the event focuses on the active beauty found in the movement of the cape. The exhibition includes a piece on loan from the UTSA Art Collection.
The exhibition is made possible by grants from the NALAC Fund for the Arts with funding from the Ford Foundation, the J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation and the Cultural Collaborative of San Antonio. The San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs provides additional support.
