Carlos Antonio Piñón

Carlos Antonio Piñón is a Chicago-born artist and writer seeking to destroy the sentence. His work has been featured in several recycle bins throughout the city, most often with a better draft already in progress.

Carlos's biggest secret is that he has no idea how to write. Like no idea. He just kind of smashes the keys on his laptop hoping they form complete sentences. He wrote his last essay by throwing darts at a dictionary.

Lecturas I. 2015. Performance.

In order to celebrate Hispanic Heritage, Chicago Public Libraries invited artist Luis Mejico to curate a series of readings known as "Lecturas" at select library locations, including the Rudy Lozano and Albany Park branches. The call for submissions asked writers, poets, and performs to submit their own unique experiences living in the city of Chicago as Latinx bodies.

The first reading (as pictured above) took place on September 15, 2015. For this performance, I read my "Red Pants" essay aloud for the first time.
