EXPO CHICAGO 2017 Is Almost Here!
EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, has established the city of Chicago as a preeminent art fair destination. It is my favorite event in Chicago every year, and initiates the beginning of the international fall art season. Taking place at Navy Pier, EXPO CHICAGO, aligns with the Chicago Architecutre Biennial, which takes place from September 16th - January 7th of 2018. They've launched an official partnership with the Palais de Tokyo and Institut français to present an off-site exhibition opening to the public on Tuesday, September 12. Entitled Singing Stones (September 13–October 29), curated by the Palais de Tokyo's Katell Jaffrès, the exhibition brings together 11 emerging artists from the French and Chicago art scenes at The Roundhouse—a 17,000 sq. ft. space built in 1881 and designed by Burnham & Root—at the DuSable Museum of African American History in Washington Park.
EXPO CHICAGO takes place from September 13th - 17th this year. Tickets may be purchase on site, but if you're looking for a deal, Gilt City actually is offering a deal for either a Four-Day Weeknd Pass for One for $25 or a Day Pass for Two for $25, both of which can be found here.
