About EXPO CHICAGO
Opening the fall art season each September, EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, features leading international galleries alongside one of the highest quality platforms for contemporary art and culture. Entering its ninth year as a leading international art fair, EXPO CHICAGO hosted more than 135 leading international exhibitors at EXPO CHICAGO 2019 in Navy Pier Festival Hall. The exposition draws upon the city’s rich history as a vibrant international cultural destination, while engaging the region’s contemporary art community and collector base.
"EXPO CHICAGO is one of our favorite fairs to do because of the long-standing history of collecting in Chicago, the fantastic curatorial attendance, and the high level of quality in our colleagues’ booths. We have done two-artist booths here for the last three years, and we never cease to be amazed by the great conversations these pairings generate."

"It’s an open secret that EXPO CHICAGO has become one of the most engaging, interesting, and rewarding fairs around. For me, the fair stands out for its unmatched level of outreach and assistance to museums and curators. The galleries also seem to know that and love them for it. EXPO’s commitment to the discourse of contemporary art and the institutions that support it has really helped make the fair a positive, healthy part of the cultural ecosystem. Chicago, needless to say, is also a fantastic city with a rich network of artists, museums, and galleries—not to mention restaurants, bars, hotels, and everything else that helps make an organized museum trip successful."
