Heather Hubs said that they were waiting to arrange an event like this one from a long time and now the time comes to try it. NADA always supports small to medium size galleries. The city personifies “the experimental spirit” of the organization. Hubs added this more.
With a collaboration of rich and organized collectors, Chicago has a vital history of radical, artist-work spaces and art movement like Imagists in the 1960s. The city is also wherein a number of the biggest names in contemporary art ready to be live, work and educate, which includes Kerry James Marshall, Nick Cave, Theaster Gates and Michael Rakowitz.
Galleries like Corbett vs Dempsey and Shane Campbell which have to emerge as distinguished presences in Chicago’s commercial sector, in addition to the appearance of many more modern spaces within a previous couple of years, like Regards, customer and Mickey.
The fair will give flexibility about the cost to the exhibitors. In this way, they can be more creative without financial risks.
A large number of spaces will be used for this imperative fair. Building’s basketball courts and poolroom will be used as event spaces. The galleries will span almost two floors.
