Blood Bolero
Composed by Guillermo Galindo inspired by photos of Maya Goded lyrics by Juvenal Acosta

A song that praises the untold love stories of forgotten lovers. The piece celebrates the amorous and erotic joy of the disadvantaged from the inner city neighborhoods of Mexico City, where photographer Maya Goded has documented the long tern relationships between prostitutes and their clients, elderly people and the friends that help them make life bearable. Blood Bolero sings to infatuation, desire and the intensity of last passion in the dark nights of Mexico City, where its creators are from.

Border Cantos: Sight & Sound Explorations from the Mexican-American Border

Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo
February 18 – April 24, 2017

Migration has an impact on both people and landscape. Border Cantos, a unique collaborationbetween American photographer Richard Misrach and Mexican composer Guillermo Galindo, harnesses the power of art to explore, share, and humanize the complex issues surrounding the borderlands between the United States and Mexico. The artists created works of photography, sculpture, and sound that document and transform artifacts from the border. Misrach’s large-scale photographs, along with inventory-like grids of smaller photographs, highlight issues surrounding immigration and how they have affected regions and people. Responding to these photographs, Galindo fashioned sound-generating sculptures from items Misrach collected from the border, such as water bottles, Border Patrol “drag tires,” spent shotgun shells, ladders, and sections of the border wall itself. The sounds they produce give voices to people through the personal belongings they have left behind.
