Francesca Bifulco is a Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist from the ancient city of Pæstum, Southern Italy. Her work processes personal and collective aspects of the human experience channeling the coexistence of its duality through paintings, mixed media sculptures, and multimedia installations. Her immersive collaborative environments interlace sound, video, and performances enhanced by fabrication and lighting design, as integral extensions of her practice. Bifulco’s distinctive visual language plays with scale, textures or the illusion of textures, and effects, reversing and reconfiguring the material through a versatile and experimental implementation of techniques. Her subjects have spanned from crowds and the force of plurality to individuals affected by social media culture, to the ritualistic repetition of card-playing in a conflicted and underrepresented Neapolitan neighborhood in her homeland. Her current series focus on three different - often interconnected - themes: treating the iconic SoCal palm tree as an anthropomorphic symbol of the communal endurance of transplants and immigrants, navigating personal loss and grief through preservation of memory, and examining the sociopolitical structures of oppression and marginalization in the U.S.

Bifulco is the other member of the interdisciplinary artist duo, Card 0 Collective, and on the Board of Directors of the DTLA-based, Immersive Arts Center (IAC), a female-led nonprofit organization providing arts programs and practical job opportunities for creatives, youth and underserved communities. Her studio is located in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.
