With MDW Fair just passed, one more art fair (or is it two?) looms on the horizon: the Art Chicago/NEXT fair at the massive Merchandise Mart.
While the Merchandise Mart remains as megalithic as ever, the fair
itself has shrunk. So much so that this year Art Chicago combines with
its younger contemporary art-focused counterpart NEXT. Paul Klein says that this was due to Chicago galleries lobbying for the combination of the two fairs.
Here's a preview of art that will be exhibited at the fair and of the installation. Photos are courtesy of Paul Klein and Art Chicago.
Like last week, I'll see you at the fair!
