Border Cantos | Sonic Border at the Hudson River Museum: Humanitarian Perspective at the wall between US and Mexico
February 12 - May 9

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.

“We are immensely proud to present Border Cantos | Sonic Border at the Hudson River Museum,” states HRM Director and CEO Masha Turchinsky. “Migration is a topic that resonates deeply in our community and this exhibition will cross boundaries in many ways. Using the language of art, Richard Misrach and Guillermo Galindo bring a humanitarian perspective to the political debates that surround the subject of immigration today."
