OVERRIDE | A Billboard Project
(click on image to enlarge)
In this unprecedented citywide public art initiative, EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Modern & Contemporary Art, in partnership with DCASE, is featuring the work of 15 artists from major local, national and international galleries on 28 digital billboards located throughout Chicago’s City Digital Network. The art displays provide artists, including seven from Chicago, an innovative opportunity to push the boundaries of how visual culture is disseminated in our increasingly image-based environment. Selected from EXPO CHICAGO 2016 Exhibitors, the artists included in this inaugural program each engage with the medium in a dynamic way, from existing projects that seamlessly extend toward a conceptual continuation of their current practice, to new works created specifically for this context.
EXPO CHICAGO/2016, The International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, is presented by Art Expositions, LLC. Now in its fifth year as a leading international art fair, EXPO CHICAGO (Sept. 22-25, 2016) is a four-day art event featuring more than 140 leading international galleries and offering diverse programming including /Dialogues, IN/SITU, IN/SITU Outside, EXPO VIDEO and the Curatorial Forum. In addition, EXPO CHICAGO continues to publish THE SEEN, Chicago's International Journal of Contemporary & Modern Art, following the first printed edition, which launched during the 2015 exposition. Under the leadership of President and Director Tony Karman, EXPO CHICAGO draws upon the city’s rich history as a vibrant international cultural destination, while highlighting the region’s contemporary arts community and inspiring its collector base. Northern Trust is the Presenting Sponsor of EXPO CHICAGO. For more information about EXPO CHICAGO, including tickets and hours, and EXPO ART WEEK happening Sept. 19-25, visit expochicago.com.
