EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, features leading international galleries alongside the highest quality platform for contemporary art and culture. In 2019, EXPO CHICAGO hosted more than 135 leading international exhibitors at Navy Pier’s Festival Hall. The exposition draws upon the city’s rich history as a vibrant international cultural destination, while engaging the region’s contemporary art community and collector base.
EXPO CHICAGO is organizing a virtual exposition during its previously scheduled in-person dates of April 8 – 12, 2021. The 2021 in-person exposition is being rescheduled and EXPO CHICAGO has secured a series of dates at Navy Pier starting July 2021 in preparation for the ninth edition as soon as it is safe for exhibitors and patrons to participate.
The city of Chicago has proudly hosted a global contemporary and modern art exposition for nearly forty years and serves as the site of the first international art fair in the Americas. Since its inception, EXPO CHICAGO has remained dedicated to supporting local, regional, and international arts communities, with strong regional support throughout the Greater Midwest, both US coasts, and maintained a growing international commitment from Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
