Kicking off the beginning of the international fall art fair season, EXPO CHICAGO is back this September at the historic Navy Pier welcoming its most international roster yet. This year 135 leading galleries representing 25 countries and 58 cities from around the world will present some of the highest quality contemporary art and culture. In addition to the leading international galleries, the 2017 exposition features a variety of programs such as the EXPOSURE section, which focuses on solo and two artist presentations by galleries that are eight years and younger selected by curator, Justine Ludwig (Dallas Contemporary), EXPO Editions + Books, featuring artist books, editions, and multiples; and the first EXPO PROFILE section, which highlights single artist installations and focused thematic exhibitions.

Along with attending the fair, Megan Fox Kelly is pleased to be moderating a talk on Next-Level Collecting: Smart Strategies for Collection Building between Wendy Cromwell (Art Advisor, Member APAA), Helyn Goldenberg (Collector), Diana Wierbicki (Art Attorney), and R. Hugh Magill (Chief Fiduciary Officer, Northern Trust). This panel of experts will provide insight to the fields of collecting, art advising, art law, fine art insurance and wealth management, providing strategies to successfully build and care for an art collection.

This years EXPO CHICAGO will align with the Chicago Architecture Biennial reinforcing the cities rich history as a destination for arts and culture.
