guest curated by Ricardo Partida

Circle Contemporary is proud to present “Duck Feet,” a group exhibition of artists across the Chicagoland area and the hybridities that bring their work together. 

Duck Feet will feature 17+ artists currently living and working in Chicago, a city that champions individuality and allows for art and culture to collide and create something new and unique. The works of each artist are informed and influenced by the inevitable hybridities found in the art styles of their community.

Ricardo Partida is a Mexican-born, Chicago-based painter and recent graduate from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago’s Master of Fine Arts in Studio program. His work largely critiques and illuminates depictions of gender and desire in the Western Art Canon by creating exalted alter egos that question conventional power structures while obscuring artist and subject. By hybridizing lines and proportions previously associated with a gendered painting language, his work creates surrogacies of seduction that explore carnal desires by creating a push and pull of menace and allure. Partida’s work has been exhibited internationally including Texas, London, Rome, and New York.
