CHICAGO, IL.- Expo Chicago, The International Exposition of Modern & Contemporary Art, announced artists selected for IN/SITU, IN/SITU Outside and EXPO Projects. IN/SITU, curated by Executive Director of The Contemporary Austin Louis Grachos, features large-scale installations and site-specific work situated throughout Navy Pier's Festival Hall, while IN/SITU Outside, presented in partnership with the Chicago Park District and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), provides the opportunity for EXPO CHICAGO to present temporary public art installations along the lakefront and throughout Chicago neighborhoods. EXPO Projects will feature a curated selection of works organized by EXPO CHICAGO and will also be placed throughout Festival Hall (Sept. 17 – 20, 2015).

The 2015 IN/SITU selection takes a significant shift in the program's presentation, featuring primarily suspended works, activating Festival Hall through large-scale hanging installations. Major works will be sited in each of the exposition's main plazas, setting a precedent for key placements in future editions of EXPO CHICAGO.

"As the fair continues to mature, so does the depth of our programming and the legacy of working with noted international curators," said EXPO CHICAGO President | Director Tony Karman. "This year, we move from soaring architectural structures over the show floor to establishing a new precedent featuring large-scale suspended works as a part of IN/SITU. We are adding several public works to Chicago's lakefront as a part of our IN/SITU Outside initiative, and we are presenting installations by major international artists as a part of EXPO Projects," he added. "It is with the strong curatorial vision and extraordinary contributions to our programming from both Louis Grachos and Alfredo Cramerotti (EXPO VIDEO Curator) that we are able to further the legacy of this expostion."

2015 IN/SITU: Suspended: Parceling the Sky
Connecting various points of interest in and around Festival Hall, IN/SITU offers a dynamic course throughout the exposition. Selected from the 140 exhibiting galleries at EXPO CHICAGO, this year's program—and setting the precedent for future IN/SITU progrmans—focuses on suspension, and features work that is inspired by light, climate and atmospheric conditions. Suspended: Parceling the Sky, a proram featuring works hung from the ceiling of Festival Hall, is highlighted by Daniel Buren's From three windows, 5 colours for 252 places (2006 | Lisson Gallery), above the center plaza of the show floor as a main focal point of the exposition. The exposition's east and west plazas will also feature highlighted suspended works. Sung Jang's MOBI, (2015 | Volume Gallery) will hover in proximity to the EXPO VIDEO section on the west plaza, while Cerith Wyn Evans' In Girum Imus Nocte Et Consumimur Igni (2008) and Antony Gormley's Freefall (2007), both from White Cube, will hang above the east plaza of the show floor.

"This year's program explores work that relates to the subject matter of Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate reflected from the iconic piece of work's chrome surface—the clouds, stars, sky and our atmosphere itself," said Grachos. "Within this aerial format, the large-scale work chosen evokes a certain celestial consciousness that confounds the expansive sky-scape above with the frenetic energy of the exposition below. Through the selection of primarily suspended works, I am thrilled to be including some of the greatest artists working today, and with the encouragement of the exposition, looking forward to setting a new model of hanging artworks to anchor the experience of EXPO CHICAGO in Navy Pier's Festival Hall for years to come.

2015 IN/SITU Outside
Continuing its endeavor to place works by major international artists in public locations throughout the city, EXPO CHICAGO has partnered with the Chicago Park District and DCASE for the second year to present IN/SITU Outside.

All pieces will be prominently placed on Chicago's Museum Campus and Grant Park near the lakefront allowing viewers to see all three structures at one time.

"I am extremely proud of the Chicago Park District's long history of hosting internationally renowned sculptures and artwork throughout Chicago's parks," said General Superintendent | CEO of the Chicago Park District Michael P. Kelly.
