As seen in SJMA's exhibition "Border Cantos," Guillermo Galindo makes musical instruments from objects found along the US/Mexico border--water jugs, border patrol flashlights, children's toys, discarded clothese--and composes music for those instruments. Here are highlights from a performance recorded at MACLA (Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana) in San Jose, California, on March 6, 2016. MACLA is one of 39 community organizations that partnered with SJMA to present programming related to immigration, migration, and identity. Galindo will perform at SJMA on June 4, 2016, and July 21, 2016.
This exhibition is SJMA's contribution to a Bay Area tribute to Hung Liu's work that began with Mill College Art Museum's presentation of "Hung Liu: Offerings" (Jan 23-Mar 17, 2013) and the Oakland Museum of California's retrospective, "Summoning Ghosts: The Art of Hung Liu" (through June 30, 2013). This playlist includes new videos made in connection with "Questions from the Sky" as well as older interviews with Liu from other sources.
