Line up for EXPO Chicago's upcoming lineup


It’s almost time for EXPO Chicago—the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art—when The School of The Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) co-presents /Dialogues, panel discussions on art.


“SAIC is proud to partner with EXPO Chicago on the /Dialogues series for the third year,” states SAIC Dean of Faculty and Vice President for Academic Administration Lisa Wainwright. “Bringing visitors to EXPO CHICAGO and engaging through these discussions enriches the context of the art on view at the exposition, and provides an opportunity for an important exchange from some of today’s top artists and thinkers.”
