EXPO CHICAGO to Reschedule April Exposition, Secures Series of Dates Enabling Flexible Response to Return to In-Person Events
will Present a Virtual Exposition During Previously Scheduled Dates of
April 8 – 11, 2021, Providing a Platform for its Global Cultural
EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, at Navy Pier, 2019.
today announced that it is rescheduling its 2021 in-person exposition
and has secured a series of dates at Navy Pier from July 2021
on–including its historic dates September 23 – 26–in order to ensure the
safety of participating exhibitors and patrons of the ninth edition.
EXPO CHICAGO will organize a virtual exposition during its previously
scheduled in-person dates of April 8 – 11, 2021. Details on the virtual
exposition’s programmatic themes and participants will be announced in
the coming weeks.
“We are grateful for our strong partnership with Navy Pier, our local
institutions, and our deeply committed exhibitors in collaborating with
us on finding the right time to mount the fair," said Tony Karman, President | Director.
“With the advice and council of our Selection Committee, civic leaders,
and dealers worldwide, we have decided to produce a digital experience
this coming April, while simultaneously preparing for an in-person fair
as soon as it is safe to do so," he added. “Fortunately, thanks to Navy
Pier we have several options to consider, including our historic
September dates, and rather than announce a set date at this time, we
will carefully monitor the progress with vaccines and protocols in order
to make the announcement with ample time for our participating
galleries, patrons, and institutional partners to prepare."
EXPO CHICAGO’s commitment to rigorous programming, institutional
alignments, VIP events, and critically acclaimed curatorial initiatives
remain core to the exposition. The previously announced program curators
Marcella Beccaria – Chief Curator and Curator of Collections at Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea (Turin) – for IN/SITU and Humberto Moro – Deputy Director and Senior Curator at Museo Tamayo (Mexico City) – for the EXPOSURE section will be returning as planned for the ninth edition.
“Navy Pier is proud to have been home to EXPO CHICAGO for nearly a
decade, presenting exhibitors and welcoming guests from around the world
with the annual opportunity to explore and enjoy this large-scale
exposition of contemporary art and culture along Chicago’s lakefront,”
said Navy Pier President and CEO Marilynn Gardner. “It
has become a tradition that our guests have come to treasure and a
partnership that our organization cherishes. We look forward to EXPO’s
ninth edition as soon as we all can gather and enjoy the event safely
and comfortably once again.”
