EXPO Chicago has announced EXHIBITION Weekend ( Sept. 24—27 )—a digital initiative showcasing Chicago-based exhibitions, curatorial projects and artist programs through virtual studio visits, exhibition and gallery tours; discussion; and a new online viewing experience developed by Hook, an online venue for seasoned art collectors and leading galleries.

EXHIBITION Weekend will activate Chicago's creative communities and provide international audiences the opportunity to engage directly through bespoke digital experiences exploring the city's top museums, institutions, and galleries.

Highlights include:

—Nick Cave Print & Art for Justice ( Sept. 24 ): The weekend will commence with a conversation featuring artist Nick Cave and philanthropist and Art for Justice founder Agnes Gund discussing the re-release of Cave's limited-edition print for sale in support of Art for Justice.

—2020 Curatorial Forum—"Confronting Race & Representation in Museums": Composed of three peer-led Zoom sessions with past participants and new Chicago-based leaders, this special, virtual convening of the Curatorial Forum will center on racial equity in museums and institutions and promote the Forum's two main goals. The goals are advancing civic-minded practice and the role of curators in empowering local art scenes; and promoting collaborations and knowledge-sharing across the United States.

—2020 participating galleries: The full list of the galleries, organizations, and alternative project spaces participating in the EXHIBITION Weekend Online viewing platform can be found at HookArt.com/exhibition-weekend.
