About this event

Galindo and Chacon bridge worlds of contemporary sound art, acoustic composition, noise, Indigenous activism, and visual art. Their projects and collaborations activate amplified objects, drawing on Indigenous and Mexican symbology and ritual items, as well as a long history of American experimental music stemming from John Cage and subsequent composers.

Tickets for this event are available by donation, with a suggested donation of $15 – $25. No one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. Please note that space is limited and early ticket registration is strongly encouraged.

About the Artists

Guillermo Galindo is a Post-Mexican composer and artist currently based in San Francisco. Galindo’s artistic practice emerges at the crossroads of instrumental composition, live improvisation, and ritual, redefining the conventional limits between art, politics, spirituality, and social awareness. His work has been shown at documenta 14 (Kassel, Germany), the CTM Festival (Berlin), and the High Line (New York) and has been featured on BBC Outlook, NHK World, Radio Télévision Suisse, NPR, and CBC, and in Art in America and The New York Times.

Raven Chacon is a composer, performer and installation artist currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Chacon’s work as a solo artist or as a member of Postcommodity has been shown at The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC), Whitney Biennial (New York), and documenta 14 (Kassel, Germany), among many other venues. Chacon has taught hundreds of students to write string quartets as part of the Native American Composer Apprenticeship Project, and is the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Music and the American Academy’s Berlin Prize for Music Composition. His recent book, For Zitkála-Šá, is co-published by New Documents and Art Metropole.
