AGO First Thursday: Shapeshifters

  • AGO - Art Gallery of Ontario 317 Dundas Street West Toronto, ON, M5T 1G4 Canada (map)

The February First Thursday launches the year by bringing together artists who envision spaces of potential, transformation and audacity. As we look around the world and question what is to come, the artists featured in February are shaping our future with strong voices that bring culture to its feet.

Our headliner is the Toronto-based singer-songwriter, artist and force Lido Pimienta. Performing highlights from her new album La Papessa, Lido is making her headlining debut at the AGO with a full-scale theatrical performance in Walker Court, performing a narrative that will inaugurate the space her magic. Additional sounds will be provided by DJ DurtyDabz in Walker Court, and DJ Ace Dillinger in Galleria Italia.

The night features artist projects by dancer-choreographer Ellen Furey, whose uncanny, avant-garde approach to movement and the body challenges traditional forms, and music producer and performer SlowPitchSound with collaborator Libydo, whose project Rabbit Hole aims to seduce and confuse our experience of space and bodies.

Tickets available here.
