Join EXPO CHICAGO at the Chicago Athletic Association for a conversation with EXPO CHICAGO 2023 guest curators Claudia Segura (Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona) and Aimé Iglesias Lukin (Americas Society in New York) for a preview of the themes and intentions for their curated programs at the upcoming exposition, running April 13—16. Lukin and Segura will be joined in conversation regarding overlapping themes of identity and place in their curatorial practices by Carla Acevedo-Yates (Marylin and Larry Fields Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago), whose recently opened exhibition Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s-Today  (November 19, 2022 – April 23, 2023) envisions a new approach to contemporary art in the Caribbean diaspora. Showcasing large scale sculpture, video, film and site-specific works throughout Navy Pier's Festival Hall, the 2023 IN/SITU program will be curated by Segura, while the 2023 EXPOSURE section, which highlights solo and two-artist presentations from galleries 10 years and younger, will be curated by Lukin.
