Aida Lizalde (b. 1990, Mexico) is a multimedia artist based in the Delta region of California and living in Sacramento. She makes sculptures, installations, and multi-media works using minimalist esthetics with construction materials, clay, found objects, and textiles. The core of her work is about raising social questions or understanding personal narratives through ritualistic and performative actions. Her sculptures are records of corporeal and material processes that analyze her personal experience in an intimate and political context in relationship to physical labor, struggles of generational trauma, gender, and assimilation as an immigrant.

Her work has been exhibited at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary, Torrance Art Museum, Southern Exposure, Gearbox Gallery, the Museum of Northern California of Chico, the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Beacon Project Sacramento, SOMArts South of Market Cultural Center, The Latino Center of Art and Culture of Sacramento, and Axis Gallery. She has curated visual arts content for Placeholder Magazine and Axis Gallery and has been a recipient of the Vermont Studio Center Fellowship, Young Space Grant, the Hopkins Endowment for Studio Art Students, the Crocker Kingsley Art Award, and the Herb Alpert Scholarship for Emerging Young Artists among others.
