In There is no such thing as a perfect circle, Felipe Dulzaides explores subjects of circularity, cultural displacement, chance, dislocation, relocation, and the relationship between architecture and public spaces.
Dulzaides, who now resides in Havana, lived in San Francisco from 1998 to 2010. He and Ireland met while Dulzaides was a student at the San Francisco Art Institute, where Dulzaides received a MFA in 2001 and taught for over a decade. He has since returned to Cuba, where he has developed Centro Bahia, an architectural restoration project and interdisciplinary art space. There is no such thing as a perfect circle will highlight works reflecting on his friendship with Ireland, including a selection of mixed media works from his earlier work Full Circle and a mixed media installation documenting Centro Bahia.
Dulzaides is a recipient of numerous awards including the Rome Prize (2010), Cintas Fellowship, Gwangju Biennial, California Biennial, and Havana Biennial. His interdisciplinary practice includes installation, photography, video, and marks on paper, and he has had numerous international solo exhibitions.
