EXPO CHICAGO partners with Daata Editions and Navy Pier to present the inaugural EXPO Sound program (September 13–17, 2017). Curated by Daata Editions, an online platform for the sale of commissioned artist video, sound and web art editions, launching new artworks by selected international artists—the program featuring artists: Larry Achiampong, Tracey Emin, Leo Gabin, Rashaad Newsome and Hannah Perry, will be complemented by works from artists represented by EXPO CHICAGO 2017 Exhibitors.

“Artist sound—like artist video, performance and digital work—is being increasingly exhibited due to the dynamic and experiential nature of the medium, paired with its all-encompassing and ephemeral presence,” said Daata Editions Director David Gryn. “The artist as performer, musician and entertainer is ever sought after in our global calendar of art events, but somewhere in all of this is the truth and essence of art making, with the outcome of very real, tangible and brilliant works of art.”

Sound is truly art for everyone. You can try and contain it – but when it is released it purvades our every pore. 

Last year in walking around the Navy Pier – I realised that I couldn’t escape from the piped pop music of Britney Spears through the public speaker system, which for the area of a food mall makes sense, but for the path leading to an art fair – not so much sense. So I mention this, in my incredulity, to Fair director Tony Karman and he simply responds “why don’t you curate Sound for 2017 ?”

So this year EXPO Sound is born, playing artist sound works primarily from Daata Editions commissioned artists as well as selected works from Expo Chicago gallery submissions. 

The program will be installed throughout the public speaker system at Navy Pier—along the South Dock, within the exposition entrance, and on the /Dialogues Stage.
