The exposition provides critical opportunities for curators, collectors, and art patrons to survey the best in innovative and emerging programs.
EXPO CHICAGO also features dynamic on-site programming, including Special Exhibitions, showcasing select international organizations, non-profits and institutions; /Dialogues panel discussions, presented in partnership with The School of the Art Institute of Chicago; EXPO VIDEO, a curated selection of new media, film and video works presented in collaboration with Columbia College Chicago; as well as IN/SITU and IN/SITU Outside, a curated selection of site-specific projects presented both on the main floor of the exposition, and throughout the city of Chicago.
With EXPO CHICAGO as the centerpiece, EXPO ART WEEK (September 14–20, 2015) is presented in conjunction with Choose Chicago, the city’s tourism and marketing organization, and Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE). This citywide celebration of arts and culture features an unprecedented number of institutional alignments and highlighted special events by the city’s most prestigious museums, non-profit organizations, and galleries, making the city a must-visit destination on the international arts calendar.
