Aida Lizalde is a Mexican artist based in California. Navigating tensions of cultural identity and continuously questioning assimilation through objects, the body, rituals, labor, endurance, discomfort, and humor is the core of her practice. She uses symbolism of her heritage, power, and race, in sculpture, performance, and installation works to explore her location and status as a non-citizen in the United States.

Her work has been exhibited at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Beacon Project Sacramento, SOMArts South of Market Cultural Center, the Manetti Shrem Museum's Third Thursday, Axis Gallery, The Latino Center of Art and Culture of Sacramento, the Art League of Lincoln, the L.H. Horton Gallery, and Blue Line Arts. She has been a recipient of the Young Space Grant, the Vermont Studio Center Fellowship, the Hopkins Endowment for Studio Art Students, the Crocker Kingsley Art Award, and the Herb Alpert Scholarship for Emerging Young Artists, among others. ​​​​​​​
