Emilio Rojas performing at “Lit and Luz Festival” @ Museum of Contemporary Art – Chicago
Emilio Rojas takes part in Live Magazine Show, the concluding celebration of the Lit & Luz Festival of Language, Literature, and Art @ Museum of Contemporary Art – Chicago.
Performance in collaboration with Natalia Toledo and Jennifer Nelson.
Each year, the Lit & Luz program supports the creation of new collaborative artworks between writers, visual artists, and musicians from Chicago and Mexico City. In the months leading up to the festival, teams of participating artists from the two cities work remotely to cocreate a performance incorporating their respective mediums. The pieces are presented during the festival in both Spanish and English and they often explore the relationship between the languages, art forms, and cultures of the United States and Mexico.
This program is organized in partnership with Sarah Dodson of Lit & Luz and Curator of Public Programs January Parkos Arnall, Assistant Curator of Public Programs Christy LeMaster, and Partnerships and Engagement Program Liaison Gibran Villalobos.
