Mt. San Jacinto College’s Art Talk Series Continues Thursday with Dulce Soledad Ibarra


The Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) Art Gallery — with support from the MSJC Foundation — will host an online art talk from 1 to 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, featuring Dulce Soledad Ibarra, a multidisciplinary artist, designer, educator, and curator with investments in community and identity-emphasized arts and opportunity.

The MSJC Art Talk series is open to the public and will be held online. 

Ibarra, also an MSJC associate faculty member, will discuss her artwork and career as an artist.  This special Art Talk is presented in conjunction with Undocumented Student Week of Action.   

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 a master’s in fine art from the University of Southern California (USC) and earned a bachelor’s in fine art in sculpture from California State University, Long Beach.  

The next Art Talk, also from 1 to 2 p.m., will be on Thursday, Nov. 10, featuring Erik Escovedo. This is a special joint presentation during Native American Heritage month and is part of Escovedo’s exhibition at The MSJC Art Gallery.
