Returning to the Windy City for the fifth year from September 22 to 25, EXPO CHICAGO has cemented its reputation as the go-to destination for collectors looking to buy contemporary art in the Midwest.

In anticipation of the fair, President and Director Tony Karman announced today the list of 145 exhibitors that have been granted a coveted booth at the event. This year’s edition will have a distinctly international flavor with galleries from 23 different countries and 52 cities slated to participate at EXPO—including representatives from Singapore, Lebanon, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates.

Meanwhile, the selection committee admitted a handful of new participants including, David Kordansky Gallery (Los Angeles); Maccarone (New York, Los Angeles); Galerie Nordenhake (Berlin, Stockholm; and Galerie Perrotin (New York, Paris, Hong Kong, Seoul).
