Participating Artists

OVERRIDE | A Billboard Project is a cutting edge citywide public art initiative, presented by EXPO CHICAGO and the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE). Displayed throughout Chicago’s City Digital Network (CDN), the citywide exhibition will run from September 7–October 17, 2018 to align with the seventh annual exposition. Selected from EXPO CHICAGO 2017 Exhibitors, the artists included in the program each engage with the medium in a dynamic way, from existing projects that seamlessly extend toward a conceptual continuation of their current practice, to new commissions created specifically for this expansive context.
