EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, takes place each September at historic Navy Pier. Now in its third season, EXPO CHICAGO features over 140 of the leading galleries from around the world. In addition to the galleries and artists on view, the exposition also includes a Special Exhibitions program, featuring select non-profits and institutions, /Dialogues panel discussions in partnership with The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, EXPO VIDEO, a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video and new media works, and IN/SITU, a curated selection of site-specific projects.
Drawing upon the city’s rich history as a destination for arts and culture, EXPO CHICAGO bridges a critical gap for Chicago’s contemporary art community by engaging with regional, national, and international institutions and collectors.
