A public tour of the exhibition led by Tie Jojima and Rachel Remick, two of the co-curators of the exhibition.

The first solo show of Cabrera in the United States, this exhibition includes sculptures that reveal the artist’s interest in the human body and her experimentation with different materials alongside archival documentation of her artistic practice in Mexico City. Born in 1926, Cabrera occupies a unique place in the trajectory of Mexican art as one of the country's most prominent female sculptors. Situated between abstraction and figuration, her visionary sculptures offered new understandings of the human form.

Tony Award nominee Robert O'Hara (Slave Play, The Public's Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare's most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King.
