  • 2022 Curatorial Forum

    The Curatorial Forum, presented annually in partnership with EXPO CHICAGO since 2016, aims to advance civic-minded curatorial practice and the role of curators in empowering local art scenes; and to promote regional collaborations and knowledge-sharing across the US.

    This year’s Curatorial Forum will bring together over 40 mid-career and established curators from more than 15 U.S. states. In addition to a series of guided site visits to the fair and cultural institutions in Chicago, the curators will participate in a series of closed-doors sessions focusing on critical questions that are relevant to contemporary curatorial practice and its context, including civic engagement, racial equity, and labor condition in the curatorial field.
