CURRENT/UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

April 9 - August 8, 2021: Angel Carales:The Uncolonized: A Vision in the Parallel
El Paso sculptor and mixed media artist Angel Cabrales is known for his provocative social commentaries on the Latin-American experience. In his latest body of work, Cabrales reimagines history in a SciFi- inspired parallel universe, where the Western Hemisphere was never colonized. 

April 16 - August 8, 2021: Rodrigo De ToledoThe Myth of the Incomplete Self
Rodrigo de Toledo 's exhibition takes us into the illuminated pages of a manuscript codex, where ancient and modern symbols are reinvented into a new context and iconography. Deities, creatures and myths from a lost civilization inhabit cosmo-mythological realms and archetypal diagrams, displayed on canvas, leather parchment, paper, and installation.

This exhibition was entirely curated by the MCA Museum Docents and demonstrates some of the research they have conducted on pieces from the permanent collection by artists with Indigenous heritage from North and South America.

Collaborative, site-specific exhibition - The centerpiece is Something to Hold Onto , Luger's second project from his Counting Coup series. This immersive installation is made from 7,000+ 1-inch unfired clay beads. Each bead represents a life lost along the US-Mexico border in the last 30 years and is intended to humanize these staggering statistics.
