EXPO CHICAGO is gearing up to host its first edition since being acquired by global art giant Frieze last July. Organizers behind the fair announced that over 170 galleries from 29 countries will be on view when the event returns to The Windy City later this spring, including 100 returning galleries from 2023.

The Galleries portion of the fair will continue to serve as the centerpiece of the show, with global heavyweights in Gagosian and Perrotin being some of the many returning to exhibit. Further on in the Exposure section, Walker Art Center curator Rosario Güiraldes compiled a list of galleries all founded within the last 10 years, including rising newcomers in Hannah Traore GalleryLouis Buhl & Co. and Anthony Gallery.
