The video program at Expo Chicago 2014 is to be curated by Astria Suparak. Expo Video, comprised of curated viewing stations in the hall, will feature three stations with videos from artists associated with exhibiting galleries. A fourth viewing station will feature work by students from Chicago's Columbia College. Suparak has curated screenings, performances and live music events and exhibitions for art spaces, academic venues and film festivals around the world.
Expo Chicago is in its third year and is the rebirth of the high end fine art fair in the city. It was a welcome return and seems poised to perhaps be that proverbial "tide that raises all boats." Others seem to have caught on that having multiple events at the same time can attract more visitors and make Chicago more of an art destination. Find out more at www.expochicago.com.
