Yonkers, NY -- Hudson River Museum is proud to announce the exhibition Border Cantos | Sonic Border, a unique and moving collaboration between photographer Richard Misrach (born in Los Angeles, 1949) and sculptor and composer Guillermo Galindo (born in Mexico City, 1960) that addresses the complexities of the humanitarian situation at the wall between the US and Mexico. Misrach and Galindo began collaborating in 2011, and have worked together over the years to create works that not only report on but transform the artifacts of migration: water bottles, articles of clothing, a soccer ball, used shotgun shells, ladders, and even sections of the Border Wall itself, which Galindo then fashions into instruments to be performed as unique sound-generating devices.

She notes that the Ice Harvest often brings more than 1000 people to the museum, making it their biggest event. “We will miss having visitors here for Ice Harvest, but hope people will enjoy this new online programming.”…
