Lido Pimienta in residence at SAW

SAW is thrilled to host multidisciplinary artist Lido Pimienta for an artist residency at the historic Rochon Residence in ByWard Market. This residency, co-hosted by Debaser, will culminate in a special intimate performance in Club SAW for SAW and Debaser's joint anniversary party at Pique on June 10, 2023.

For her month-long residency, Pimienta has made use of the SAW Nordic Lab screenprinting facilities and artist studio to create a series of new prints and editions, and thanks to artist Gayle Kabloona and Studio Space Ottawa, has also worked in their ceramics studio. Special editions of Pimienta's work created in residence will be available for purchase at the Pique Art Market.

At Pique on June 10, not only will Pimienta perform music from her Grammy-nominated and Polaris Music Prize-winning albums, but an original score composed by Pimienta and arranged by Academy Award-nominated composer Owen Pallett will be performed by Quatuor Bozzini in a program of works also featuring works by Raven Chacon and Tanya Tagaq. An episode of LIDO TV, the fantastically funny and insightful variety show created by Pimienta for CBC Gem, will also be screened in the DARC Microcinema, thanks to the support of the Digital Arts Resource Centre.

Tickets to Pique are available here.
