EXPO CHICAGO: The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art took place at Navy Pier on Sept. 19-22.

The eighth annual exposition hosted 135 galleries from 24 countries and 68 cities, and introduced diverse programming. Programming included the /DIALOGUES panel series, featuring artistic discourse with leading artists, curators, designers and arts professionals on the current issues that engage them; IN/SITU, with large-scale and site-specific works; and more.

Just a few of the gallery exhibitors included Mendes Wood DM ( Sao Paulo; Brussels; New York ), CONVERSO ( Chicago; New York; Los Angeles ), Galerie RX ( Paris ), Fredric Snitzer Gallery ( Miami ), Stephen Daiter Gallery ( Chicago ) and Gavlak ( Los Angeles; Palm Beach ). Also, many of the items were up for sale—with one of the items on the higher end being Andy Warhol’s diamond-dust candy box ( $150,000, at Chicago’s Alan Koppel Gallery ).
