Curatorial Forum 2016

From its inception, EXPO CHICAGO’s mission has been to include, serve, and showcase, the vibrant programming taking place in institutions across the country. The invitation only Forum is designed to provide leading curators a unique networking opportunity with exclusive access to EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art and all of its ancillary events including a visit to a top Chicago art collection, artist studios, and institutional exhibitions. In 2016, the Forum allowed curators from across the country the opportunity to discuss current and upcoming exhibitions with colleagues, dealers and attending artists, acting as a catalyst for future collaborative programming with each other and with EXPO CHICAGO.
