She has had a long producing partnership with artist, Almerinda Travassos, as well as collaborative projects with other artists. Margaret’s work has been the subject of a retrospective at the British Film Institute and is in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, Museum of Modern Art in New York and the National Museum of the Philippines. Her work has been exhibited at festivals and in galleries throughout Canada and internationally
