EXPO CHICAGO: 2015 French-American Curatorial Exchange

EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, is pleased to announce programming that has developed from a yearlong curatorial exchange between France and the United States in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and theInstitut français. These cultural exchanges led to the formation of special projects including a residency embedded in Chicago’s South Side and a focused panel discussion at EXPO CHICAGO on the architectural extension of abstract art since the 1960s.

Curator Guillaume Désanges collaborates with Rebuild Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by artist and activist Theaster Gates, on theFrench Pavilion, an innovative residency program in conjunction with EXPO CHICAGO.
