Richard Misrach/Guillermo Galindo: Border Cantos/Sonic Border - Missoula

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - Saturday, September 21, 2019

This exhibition is a multi-sensory experience featuring 10 large-scale photographs by Richard Misrach and eight sculptures accompanied by a sound composition created by experimental composer Guillermo Galindo about the zone surrounding the U.S.-Mexico border. The borderlands are home to more than 80 million people in four United States and six Mexican states and extend nearly 2,000 miles from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean. The bulk of United States-Mexico trade ($3.8 trillion combined annual GDP), as well as illicit trade, passes through its many crossings. Misrach, who has photographed the border since 2004, documents landscapes and objects, including things left behind by migrants. Responding to these photographs, Galindo fashions instruments, and unique sound-generating devices, and composes graphic musical scores, many of which use Misrach’s photographs as points of departure.
