Border Cantos Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo is a 2016 exhibit at the Amon Carter Museum, which says: "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." Article includes two videos. Also see exhibit article by San Jose Museum of Art and exhibit website. Also see Border Cantos: Sight & Sound Explorations from the Mexican-American Border, Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo, a 2017 exhibit at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art which says: "Border Cantos, a unique collaboration between American photographer Richard Misrach and Mexican American sculptor/composer Guillermo Galindo, uses the power of art to explore and humanize the complex issues surrounding the United States-Mexico border."
