Expo Chicago Announces Artists for In/Situ Sector

Expo Chicago 2016.


Expo Chicago has revealed the artists who will participate in the In/Situ sector of the fair’s upcoming edition, which will open in the Windy City on September 13. Organized by Florence Derieux, who was formerly a curator of American art at the Centre Pompidou Foundation, this year’s In/Situ sector—the fair’s annual showcase for monumental artworks—will be titled “Chronopolitics.”

In a statement, Derieux said, “The artist’s works featured in this year’s program all share an approach to the role and impact of the measure of time on our contemporary social, political and cultural structures. Using a wide array of mediums, these artists’ works question the temporal conditions, or episodes, that disturb our traditionally linear understanding of time and progress. In doing so, they allow us to experiment, evaluate, imagine and reimagine our own relation to reality.”

Alongside the works themselves, there will be two talks related to In/Situ. Stephanie Cristello, the fair’s director of programming, will lead a talk about sculpture and the everyday with artists Nina Beier and Tom Burr, and Derieux will discuss the sector with some of its participating artists.

The artists who will show work at this year’s In/Situ sector are as follows:

– Sanford Biggers | moniquemeloche (Chicago)
