When Expo came into existence Chicago had been without a major art fair for a number of years. Galleries I spoke to were leery of coming to/ returning to the city. Some of those same galleries now participate in Expo. The fair has grown more impressive not just in participating galleries but in the increasingly interesting and complex programming.
Programing this year inicludes: Dialogues, IN/SITU, IN/SITU Outside, OVERRIDE, EXPO Sound, EXPO VIDEO, Art Critics Forum and Special Exhibitions.
