An Exposition of Art, Expo Chicago Opens Today

Expo Chicago, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, opens the fall art season each September at historic Navy Pier. Join the world’s top artists, thinkers, curators and collectors to see a curated blend of contemporary and modern art, design and new technology works from leading local, national and international galleries. You’ll also enjoy museum-quality, concept-driven programming during this international exposition.

Entering its fourth edition in 2015, EXPO CHICAGO running September 17-20, presents artwork from 140 leading galleries, representing 16 countries and 47 cities from around the world, and includes EXPOSURE—a section that affords younger galleries the opportunity to participate in a major international art fair. EXPOSURE provides critical opportunities for curators, collectors, and art patrons to survey the best in innovative and emerging programs.

Programming will extend beyond the exposition with the third annual EXPO ART WEEK (September 14 – 20), as Chicago’s premier cultural institutions join forces for a citywide celebration of art and culture, showcasing key exhibition and event alignments with leading museums and cultural institutions. Highlighted alignments include highly anticipated exhibits at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Arts Club of Chicago, the Block Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial.

Prices are $20.00 for a one day ticket, $30.00 for a three day weekend ticket and $15.00 for group tickets.  Expo Chicago hours are 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.  For more details, including ticket options, visit Expo Chicago.
