The annual edition of the Lit & Luz Festival culminates in a world premiere Live Magazine Show in Chicago, before continuing on to Mexico City this winter. Each year, Lit & Luz supports the creation of new collaborative artworks between writers, visual artists, and musicians from Chicago and Mexico City. Expect storytelling, live music, poetry, video art, and extemporaneous performances that explore the relationship between the languages, art forms, and cultures of the United States and Mexico.

Join the hosts and artists after the show for a reception in the Edlis Neeson theater. This program is organized by the Lit & Luz Festival in collaboration with MCA Assistant Curator Christy LeMaster.
