Experimental composer Guillermo Galindo redefines the sonic possibilities of found objects along the 2,000 mile border between the U.S. and Mexico. In a unique collaboration with photographer Richard Misrach called Border Cantos, Galindo breathes musical life into spent shotgun shells, crushed soda cans, clothing and bits of the border wall itself by morphing them into sound-generating devices that evoke a humanitarian plea of border issues. The exhibition, which features reflections of immigrant artists in California, will showcase these imaginative devices, along with works by Pantea Karimi, Anna Larina, Jung Ran Bae, Takeshi Moro, and Xiaoze Xie.
