Gallery Weekend Chicago (GWC), in partnership with Mana Contemporary Chicago, presents EXPANDED, an exhibition showcasing 25 of Chicago’s leading established contemporary art galleries and emerging artist-run spaces. Occupying a 20,000-square-foot space on the 4th floor of the Mana building in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, EXPANDED brings together 25 galleries—all members of GWC—under one roof. Each gallery will present a solo exhibition, collectively reflecting the diverse and complex nature of Chicago’s art scene. Now in its 6th year, GWC’s partnership with Mana Contemporary Chicago marks an exciting new curatorial focus to support Chicago galleries and their artists by promoting the scene to local and international audiences.

Mana Contemporary Chicago is a rapidly expanding art center that is home to artist studios, exhibition spaces, and artist residencies, and provides free programming to the public.
