EXPO CHICAGO had hoped to move forward in September but has postponed the event until April, 2021. The health and safety of EXPO CHICAGO’s visitors, patrons, and participating galleries are of primary concern. Since it was founded in 2011, EXPO CHICAGO has built its success in large part due to the unwavering support of Chicago’s cultural, business, and hospitality community. Ingrained in this community is a profound ethos of collaboration, which President/ Director Tony Karman and the EXPO CHICAGO team expect to both rely and build upon in the months to come. The exposition maintains a commitment to the highest level of production, with a focus on presenting critically acclaimed programs including the /Dialogues and Exchange by Northern Trust talks series, and robust curatorial initiatives including the Curatorial Forum and the Curatorial Exchange, which together have served nearly 200 local and international curators over the past six years. Hosted within Navy Pier’s Festival Hall, EXPO CHICAGO’s ninth edition will take place April 8 to 11, 2021. For more information, visit expochicago.com.
