ExpoChicago: GangBusters
I had the pleasure of previewing ExpoChicago while dealers and art installers were setting up their booths.  This is the moment of supreme optimism, when everything might just work out as everyone has dreamed.  And it just might.

Exhibitors not seen in Chicago in over a decade have returned with way better than the material they normally take to art fairs.  Excellent newer and younger galleries are also participating, and the show does an exemplary job of including non-commercial presentations by local arts organizations.

Organizer Tony Karman teamed with star architect Jeanne Gang who designed a gorgeous layout, with three dazzling, silver, hanging elements that enliven the whole show and keep people from getting lost.  Everyone is thrilled to be there.  The show is about as good as it can be.
