||ART EXPO CHICAGO pushed to 2021
This article shared 2166 times since Tue May 12, 2020
EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, will present its ninth edition from April 8—11, 2021 at Navy Pier.
The decision to move the fair from its traditional September 2020 time slot to this coming spring was the result of a collaborative decision-making process that EXPO CHICAGO conducted with galleries, collectors, institutional partners and city officials.
In response to the rapidly evolving social and business environments, EXPO CHICAGO put in place a plan that allows exhibitors to provide non-binding deposits and, subsequently, a flexible payment schedule for those participating in the exposition.
In addition, alongside expanding programming and initiatives, EXPO CHICAGO has pledged to make contributions to both the Art Dealers Association of America and the New Art Dealers Association from the proceeds of the exposition.
