Dulce Soledad Ibarra is a multidisciplinary artist, designer, educator, and curator with investments in community and identity-emphasized arts and opportunity. As a practicing artist, Ibarra discusses issues of generational guilt, identity, class, labor, displacement, and injustice in sculptures, videos, installations, performances, and participatory work. Looking through queer Xicanx perspective, the work is fueled by emotional labor, personal and cultural research and analysis. Currently, the work is centered around the aesthetics and resilience of the Piñata/Party Supply District of Downtown Los Angeles, engaging in the means of sustaining as a community of businesses and as a place of cultural familiarities and commodities. Ibarra has exhibited, screened, performed, and programmed at venues across California, including Angels Gate Cultural Center, Charlie James Gallery, Consulado General de México en Los Ángeles, Craft Contemporary, Human Resources Los Angeles, and Pieter Performance Space, among others. Ibarra holds an MFA from the University of Southern California and earned a BFA in Sculpture from California State University, Long Beach.
