Friday, August 23rd, 2013

More than 120 international galleries from 17 countries will set up shop on Chicago's Navy Pier next month for the art fair Expo Chicago, Sept. 19-22. Tours, panel discussions, and uniquely curated site-specific projects are on tap. And there's plenty of big names to get excited about. Jeanne Gang and Studio Gang Architects designed the interior environment with a floor plan patterned after the city's gridded streets; Dean Otto of the Walker Art Center curated the video artists showing at Expo Video, an exhibition area and lounge; David Salkin Creative designed a table-service restaurant to be held within the exposition; Casa Spazio will furnish the VIP lounge and Room & Board another rooftop lounge; and NYC's Snarkitecture will create a series of upholstered foam seats under the main center atrium.
