EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, returns to Navy Pier’s Festival Hall September 18–21, 2014 and is currently accepting applications.
Maintaining its ardent commitment to quality by limiting the number of participating galleries, all applications will be thoroughly reviewed by the 2014 Selection Committee for compliance with quality of artwork and unique booth proposals. Recognizing the importance of emerging galleries, EXPO CHICAGO’s acclaimed EXPOSURE section affords up to 20 galleries, in business seven years or less, the opportunity to participate with special presentations of one or two artists. Additionally, EXPO CHICAGO is proud to offer a limited number of special exhibition areas for museums and international not-for-profits to participate.
With 30,000 visitors attending the recent second edition, EXPO CHICAGO continues to build momentum by attracting regional, national and international collectors, curators and art enthusiasts to Chicago each September. 2013 exhibitors acknowledged increased sales and greater attendance from the Midwest institutions along with a marked increase in collectors and curators from the U.S., Europe and Latin America.
EXPO CHICAGO also continues to benefit from the unanimous support of Chicago’s civic, business and cultural leaders. Several key exhibition alignments with leading museums and cultural institutions will be announced soon. Additionally, EXPO CHICAGO remains committed to presenting its critically acclaimed onsite programming including /Dialogues, EXPO VIDEO and IN/SITU, designed to showcase top contemporary artists and curators at the exposition.
