EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, has established the city of Chicago as a preeminent art fair destination. Initiating the beginning of the international fall art season each September, EXPO CHICAGO takes place at historic Navy Pier, whose vast vaulted architecture hosts leading international exhibitors presented alongside one of the highest quality platforms for global contemporary art and culture. Dedicated to rigorous and challenging programming, EXPO CHICAGO initiates strategic international partnerships, built alongside strong institutional relationships with major local museums and organizations to open parallel exhibitions and events. 

In 2018, EXPO CHICAGO will again partner with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, as well as other city institutions and events, to present various programs and activations throughout EXPO ART WEEK including panel discussions, performances, and activations expanding beyond Navy Pier throughout the city.

Art After Hours is Friday, September 20, citywide. For details and participating galleries. click here
