Member of the National System of Artistic Creators of Mexico (SNCA), she holds an MFA as a Full Merit Fellow in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and a bachelor’s degree in Hispanic Language and Literature from the National University of Mexico (UNAM). Goldbard investigates how radical community performances can subvert the imposition of hegemonic narratives, and how performances of violence and destruction can become aesthetic tools of resistance against power. She is especially interested in how collectively building, staging, and destroying has the potential to generate critical thinking and social transformation. Goldbard’s investigation focuses on developing a poetics of violence and a decolonial methodology for participant artistic practice. Recent commissioned projects include a pyrotechnic play with/for the Mexican community of La Villita, Chicago (Gallery 400, University of Illinois, 2019-20), and a socially engaged art project with/for the P’urhépecha community of Arantepacua (FEMSA Biennial, 2020-21). She is currently working on a long-term participant project in the Peruvian Andes.
