EXPO CHICAGO’s Online Dispatch features a focused collection of programming, exhibitions, and resources that highlight the mission-driven work produced by our global network of galleries, institutions, museums, and non-profits. This inclusive initiative also looks back at specific programs highlighted throughout the exposition’s history, engaging with past panels, installations, and projects relevant to our times. During September 25-27, the Online Dispatch will highlight exhibitions, curatorial projects, and artist programs from leading artists, galleries, and institutions happening during EXHIBITION Weekend, a three-day virtual gathering of Chicago's contemporary arts community. EXHIBITION Weekend will activate Chicago's creative communities and provide international audiences the opportunity to engage directly through virtual tours, conversations, and an online viewing experience.
Sign up for our mailing list to receive the latest daily program and event information during the run of EXHIBITION Weekend in addition to updates on digital initiatives, exhibitions, conversations, long-read articles, grants, and other crucial resources created by our partner galleries, institutions, museums, and non-profits.
RESPONSE TO COVID-19
As it prepares for its ninth edition, April 8–11, 2021 at Navy Pier, the exposition is keeping a close eye on the latest developments and continuously monitoring recommendations from health professionals and government agencies. This information will be made available to all guests.
EXPO CHICAGO always strives to adjust to the needs of the community and reinforces that commitment through partnerships with leading international galleries, local institutions, museums, social justice organizations, and global collaborators.
