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. 

Sign up for our mailing list to receive the latest news in digital initiatives, exhibitions, conversations, long-read articles, grants, and other crucial resources created during these pivotal times.



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.

In recognition of the many pressing challenges our partners are facing during the COVID-19 crisis and with a deep acknowledgement of a present need for immediate social change, the exposition has compiled a selection of local and national resource lists with the needs of galleries, artists, curators, and cultural workers in mind.
