Culminating with the close of Arts of Life’s current Circle Contemporary Exhibition, Chicago artist Ricardo Partida brings his curatorial debut to The Other Art Fair for the 2nd iteration of Duck Feet, a group exhibition of artists across the Chicagoland area and the hybridities that bring their work together.

Their booth at The Other Art Fair will feature 20 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. A custom photo booth experience designed for the fair will invite visitors to discover the full range of works on display.

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.
