Mateo Galindo

Mateo Galindo is a mixed media artist working with film, video, sound and installation. His work is influenced by experimental and expanded cinema as well as the Indigenous, Latinx and Chicanx art movements. He is also co founder of the curatorial platform, “Atomic Culture.”  Born in the southwest Galindo is inspired by his cultural traditions, deviations, as well as the intersection of ecology and identities that surround the southwest border. Through documentary and experimental modes, Galindo uses "rasquache" sensibilities to investigate perception of memory, space and the intersection of culture and technology.
