New Acquisition Artist Talk + Performance: Guillermo Galindo. Photo credit: Thomas Lohnes/Getty Images Europe. MAR 3, 2021 NEW ACQUISITION ARTIST TALK + PERFORMANCE: GUILLERMO GALINDO 6:00 pm, Zoom Event Join us for a virtual talk, performance, and audience Q&A featuring artist and experimental composer Guillermo Galindo. Galindo will discuss their work Siguiendo Los Pasos del Niño Perdido/Following the Steps of the Lost Child (2017), recently acquired by the Mills College Art Museum. The piece is a graphic score based on the movements of a lost child, embroidered onto a flag used along the US/Mexico border to indicate the location of water tanks for migrants. The talk will be accompanied by a screening of Border Cantos, a collaboration with photographer Richard Misrach in which the quotidian artifacts of migration are fashioned into instruments to be performed.

Siguiendo Los Pasos del Niño Perdido/Following the Steps of the Lost Child was identified and selected for inclusion in the MCAM Collection by Mills students in the fall 2020 Museum Studies Workshop, and represents our efforts to diversify the MCAM Collection and support work by BIPOC and LGBTQ artists. You can see Galindo’s piece in our digital exhibition Shifting Perspectives, online now.
