EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, is pleased to announce an official partnership with the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Institut Français as part of Hors les Murs, a large-scale off-site exhibition project, and an official satellite program initiated by the fair to open in Chicago during the sixth edition of the exposition (Sept. 13-17, 2017) and run concurrently during the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial (Sept. 16 - Dec. 31, 2017). Curated by the Palais de Tokyo’s Katell Jaffrès, the project will develop in two parts; the first through a strategic residency partnership with Mana Contemporary Chicago, allowing international and France-based artists to produce new work in Chicago; and the second, an ambitious large-scale public exhibition that will involve a strong architectural component—site to be announced—and through a partnership with the Graham Foundation to nominate local emerging architects to collaborate with Jaffrès on a singular approach to the space and exhibition design. Additional programming partners will be announced at a later date.
