Border Cantos

Artist Lecture and Performance

Explore the combination of photography and sound during this artist lecture and performance inspired by the special exhibition Border Cantos: Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo. Photographer Richard Misrach will discuss his process, influence, and experiences when creating the large-scale photographs of the border between the U.S and Mexico featured in the exhibition. Then, artist-musician Guillermo Galindo will play musical instruments (also on display in the exhibition) that he created out of artifacts like clothing, shotgun shells, drag tires, and toys—all found along the border.

Following the program, both artists will be available to sign the project publication, Border Cantos, for sale at the Museum Store.

Email visitors@cartermuseum.org for more information about reservations.

This program on American art, culture, and society is made possible by a generous gift from the late Anne Burnett Tandy.
