EXPO CHICAGO, the international Modern and contemporary art fair, returns to its lakefront home. Of the 135 galleries presenting this year, Gagosian is the most conspicuous addition. Further signs of Expo’s development into a fixture on the art circuit can be read in institutional collaborations and the return of Luhring Augustine, Galerie Perrotin and Anton Kern Gallery, among others.
This year’s edition is designed to maximise crossover potential with the second Chicago Architecture Biennial. Stephanie Cristello, the fair’s director of programming, says that aligning with the design community was an important opportunity to branch out and “trace the lineage and consider where that trajectory might lead in future years”.
