The Expo Chicago art fair has revealed the artists participating in the public art and sound sectors related to its upcoming 2017 edition. The works will be on view when the fair opens on September 13.

Expo’s public art programming includes two sectors: a series of billboard works titled Override and a group of site-specific outdoor works called In/Situ Outside. Both sectors will feature work installed around Chicago.

The fair’s sound works will be curated this year by Daata Editions, a website that sells and programs video, digital works, and sound pieces. Some of the artists chosen to participate in the Expo Sound sector are also represented elsewhere in the fair.
