Solo Museum Exhibition | Along the Border: Guillermo Galindo @ Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum | Saratoga Springs | New York | United States

Along the Border presents the work of experimental composer, multimedia artist, and performance artist Guillermo Galindo to explore the economic, political, and social issues around the Mexico-United States border. Since 2009, Galindo has created a series of instruments, or as Galindo calls them, “cybertotemic sonic objects,” that are crafted from discarded objects found at multiple sites along the 2000-mile national divide. On exhibit are works constructed from discarded cans, shoes, bicycle wheels, wood, leather, and more.

The exhibition is curated by Skidmore College Professor Emeritus of Economics Mehmet Odekon and Tang Museum Assistant Director for Curatorial Affairs and Malloy Curator Rachel Seligman with Curatorial Assistant Molly Channon.
