The biggest international art event of the fall season kicks off with the sixth annual Expo Chicago, the international exposition of contemporary and modern art at Navy Pier, on September 14–17. An array of 135 galleries that hail from 58 cities and 25 countries will transform the Navy Pier festival hall into a colorful, global showcase. Art lovers can browse an exciting display of contemporary art works as well as attend panel discussions, view curated film and video and participate in special daily events.
Notable galleries, including Lisbon’s Galeria Filomena Soares, China’s HDM Gallery and Chicago’s own Rhona Hoffman Gallery, will fill Navy Pier with installations from a range of compelling artists.
Artist books, limited editions and prints will be available at the Expo Editions + Books section, and the Special Exhibitions area will feature installations from museums and non-profit organizations.
Art Expo will also join the Chicago Architecture Biennial and Palais de Tokyo to launch an offsite exhibit, “Singing Stones,” at the Roundhouse, located at DuSable Museum of African American History in Hyde Park.
