Vision and Voice: 
Reflections of Immigrant Artists in California

Artists: Guillermo Galindo, Pantea Karimi, Jung Ran Bae, Anna Larina, Takeshi Moro, Xiaoze Xie

Guillermo Galindo (born in Mexico City, Mexico, lives in Oakland) Guillermo synthesizes cultures, creates short circuits that enable a new language of sound, image and sculpture that ignite a sense of humor. His piece, “Ojo”/ “Eye” or “Watch Out” is a bicycle wheel collected from the border which acts as an antenna for a Theremin (an electronic musical instrument controlled without physical contact). The haunting sound emitted by the Theremin coupled with the squeaky tire, create a harmony for the immigrant experience.
Genevieve Hastings has interviewed each artist and recorded stories and insights into their lives and experiences. An audio station for visitors is set up to hear their related stories in conversation with the curator. These conversations are about their experiences in life, their relationship to their work and families and their lives as artists.
