CANCELED | Artists Connect: Lido Pimienta


Admission actions

In the interest of the health and safety of our visitors, guest speakers, performers, and staff, we are canceling all events through April 10. We hope to reschedule this program and will let all current registrants know of the new date as soon as it’s set. 

Please review other precautionary measures the museum is taking due to COVID-19.

Toronto-based, Colombian-born interdisciplinary musician and artist-curator Lido Pimienta, whose album La Papessa won Canada’s Polaris Music Prize, performs at the Art Institute of Chicago. Powered by glittering synths and influenced by Afro-Colombian singing and drumming styles, Pimienta’s deeply political music and multimedia work is informed by her identity as an immigrant, an Afro-indigenous person, and an intersectional feminist. Her live shows are famously interactive, as she rearranges her audience to allow women of color to the front.

The performance is presented in connection with the Art Institute’s Arts of the Americas collection.

Artists Connect is a performance series that highlights the creative process. Artists, poets, dancers, and musicians engage with works of art, making connections to their own practice and inspiring new ways of understanding the Art Institute’s collection.

If this program reaches capacity, a stand-by line will form outside the venue at 7:00 for seats that become available.


Support for public programs is provided in part by the Woman’s Board of the Art Institute of Chicago.
