This weekend the MDW Art Fair lands at 3636 South Iron Street on Saturday (1-10 pm) and Sunday (1-5 pm). I’ll be speaking on a panel at 4 pm, and I was lucky enough to get a preview of the fair as installation was in full swing. The building itself is fantastic, high ceilings and wood construction, the kind of space that developers are just itching to turn into condos or lofts. The photo gallery here is a (very) small sample of what’s going to be on display; I tried to photograph spaces that were fully installed on well on their way. Regrettably some spaces were not yet publicly identified, but I think it’s important to show the art anyways.
