This multidimensional collaboration between heralded photographer Richard Misrach and innovative artist-musician Guillermo Galindo examines the border between the United States and Mexico through a revelatory, humanistic lens. Border Cantos brings together Misrach’s often large-scale photographs with musical instruments that Galindo has created out of artifacts like clothing, shotgun shells, drag tires, and toys found along the border fence. These items, together with the sound and video installations of Galindo playing his instruments, evoke the raw authority of the wall while conjuring the quiet unease that suffuses the U.S. side of the border.
