Libbi Ponce is an Ecuadorian-American artist whose work explores Latinx-Futurism and modes of decolonization. Through Ponce’s status as a first-generation immigrant, her family heritage, and experience growing up digitally native, she is currently constructing a virtual environment for an interstellar alter-ego. A digital personal history is created through archival research and presented as immersive video installations, sculptures, or internet links. Ponce brings together contemporary recording and display devices with ancient Andean artifacts, vintage bathroom design, and experimental perspective. Libbi has shown her work in various locations including, Philadelphia, New Orleans, LA, NY, Michigan, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. She has attended the Oxbow School of Art, the Currents Undergraduate Residency at PAFA, the Yale Norfolk Undergraduate Residency, and ACRE (Artist’s Cooperative Residency & Exhibitions). She is currently pursuing her BFA in Studio Art and BA in Philosophy at the University of South Florida. Ponce serves as an art instructor at the Tampa Museum of Art and as Exhibitions Coordinator at Tempus Projects.
