Departing from the art of music composition in search for the crossroads of expression

gal*in_dog (aka Guillermo Galindo), post-Mexican composer, has no borders.  He will present his journey from academic composition to becoming a visual artist, cyber-totemic medium, performer and professional trouble maker.  He traces back his endless pilgrimage as a sound assembler, psycho-healer, socio avant-garde advocate, reverse anthropologist and casual ritualistic practitioner.

Galindo will do his best at explaining his process. By being lost forever, he came to collaborate with Richard Misrach in Border Cantos, then presented his work at Documenta 14, and recently composed an interactive string quartet for Kronos.

Guillermo Galindo is the 2017-18 Mohr Visiting Artist hosted by the Department of Art & Art History. The Mohr Visiting Artist Program is supported by Nancy and Larry Mohr and administered by Office of the Vice President for the Arts.
