Friday, April 12, 10PM
Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto (MOCA) – 158 Sterling Road
Co-presented in partnership with MOCA Toronto and Unit 2
A work of theatre. A work of performance.
Lido Pimienta is a Toronto-based, Colombian-born interdisciplinary musician and artist-curator. She has performed, exhibited, and curated around the world since 2002, exploring the politics of gender, race, motherhood, identity and the construct of the Canadian landscape in the Latin American diaspora and vernacular.
Her 2017 Polaris Prize-winning album La Papessa charts Pimienta’s evolution into an independent woman and artist who refuses to fit into pre-conceived notions of what a pop Latina artist ought to be.
—Curated by Sarah-Tai Black
