stARTup Art Fair Chicago is a contemporary art fair for independent artists.
This three-day fair will run September 23-25, 2016 at the MileNorth Hotel in Chicago, and takes place at the same time as the nearby Expo Chicago gallery fair. Participating artists will have a fantastic opportunity to expose new work to a myriad of collectors, curators, gallery owners, art consultants, and writers who will be coming to the city for a weekend of contemporary art.
One of the core missions of stARTup Art Fair is to provide a marketplace that gives artists the power to present and sell work on their own terms. All sales proceeds, as well as professional contacts made during the fair, belong 100% to the artists.
Applications for stARTup Art Fair Chicago will be accepted through June 30th, 2016. Those selected from the open application process will each take over a hotel room for the course of three days to present a solo show of their work. Through its democratic, online application, stARTup Art Fair gives artists the opportunity to have their work reviewed by an impressive, influential Selection Committee with a diverse range of art world professionals that includes:
Elizabeth Dunbar, President & CEO, Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY
Allison Glenn, independent curator and writer, Chicago, IL
Michelle Grabner, conceptual artist, curator, Milwaukee, WI and Chicago, IL
Sabina Ott, artist, educator, curator, and founder of Terrain Exhibitions, Oak Park, IL
