EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art, has established the city of Chicago as a preeminent art fair destination. Initiating the beginning of the international fall art season each September, EXPO CHICAGO takes place at historic Navy Pier, whose vast vaulted architecture hosts leading international exhibitors presented alongside one of the highest quality platforms for global contemporary art and culture. Dedicated to rigorous and challenging programming, EXPO CHICAGO initiates strategic international partnerships, built alongside strong institutional relationships with major local museums and organizations to open parallel exhibitions and events. The 2017 edition of EXPO CHICAGO (September 13–17) will align with the Chicago Architecture Biennial (September 16–December 31), and inaugurate a global partnership with the Palais de Tokyo in Paris to bring the first official satellite exhibition of their Hors les Murs program in the United States to Chicago.
Perched high above the six corners of Damen, Milwaukee and North Avenues in an Art Deco masterpiece formerly known as the Northwest Tower—stretching 203-feet tall and the only skyscraper for miles—The Robey captures the storied spirit of Chicago: a bustling, ever-changing, big-shouldered town. Its name is from Robey Street—the north-south artery that would become Damen Avenue.
Originally designed as an office building in 1929 by the firm of Perkins, Chatten, & Hammond, each of the hotel's 69 light-filled rooms, lobby and roof spaces were transformed by Belgian design duo Nicolas Schuybroek Architects and Marc Merckx Interiors.
