Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Along the Border, experimental composer, multimedia artist, and performance artist Guillermo Galindo will perform an original composition using instruments he has crafted from discarded objects found at multiple sites along the Mexico-United States border.

Along the Border presents Galindo's work, which explores the economic, political, and social issues around the Mexico-United States border. Since 2009, Galindo has created a series of instruments which he calls “cybertotemic sonic objects,” made from discarded objects found along the 2000-mile national divide. The exhibition features works constructed from discarded cans, shoes, bicycle wheels, wood, leather, and more. 

This event is free and open to the public.
