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.

The fair opens with a VIP preview on Thursday, September 27, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, to benefit the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, presented by the MCA Women’s Board.

The 2018 edition of EXPO CHICAGO will align with Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art, to present various programs and events throughout EXPO ART WEEK (September 24–30, 2018) including panel discussions, performances, and activations across the city.

The EXPOSURE section, presented within the main exposition hall, is dedicated to emerging programs presenting solo and two-artist presentations represented by galleries 8 years and younger. An unrivaled talks program for both public and VIP audiences on two stages, /Dialogues and Exchange by Northern Trust continue to feature the most established and respected voices in contemporary art and culture. The on-site installations program IN/SITU, selected by a major international curator, and EXPO Projects organized by the fair Directors, feature large-scale suspended sculptures and site-specific works within the exhibition hall, alongside EXPO VIDEO, featuring a dynamic curated screening program for film, video, and new media works, and Special Exhibitions booths highlighting non-profit organizations. The off-site public program engages the city’s long legacy with public art, including IN/SITU Outside, siting works by major contemporary artists throughout Chicago Park District locations for up to one year, and OVERRIDE | A Billboard Project, presenting a curated selection of digital art on the citywide network. Committed to fostering contemporary art criticism and discourse, EXPO CHICAGO publishes THE SEEN, Chicago’s only international journal of contemporary and modern art, online and in print.

Expanding on its renowned VIP Program—an audience of top international collectors, gallerists, art advisors, artists, and academics—the annual EXPO CHICAGO Curatorial Forum provides a conference platform to leading institutional and independent exhibition organizers.
