Proud to present 125 leading international galleries from 17 different countries and 36 cities, EXPO CHICAGO has established itself as a preeminent art fair and cultural destination. EXPO CHICAGO’s design-forward interior and layout, conceived by Studio Gang Architects, led by MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang, will once again underscore the outstanding modern and contemporary artwork presented by the exhibiting galleries. EXPO CHICAGO also offers a full roster of events including collection tours, panel discussions and site-specific projects. Vernissage, the opening night preview benefiting the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, takes place Thursday, September 19, from 6 to 9pm. Tickets for Vernissage (starting at 100 USD) are on sale now and can be purchased at mcachicago.org/vernissage. Northern Trust is the Presenting Sponsor of EXPO CHICAGO.
