About the events

Through a selection of video works presented in a dedicated screening room and a dance performance by Michelle Rizzo, this special presentation of work by Netherlands-based artists suggests that sonic expressions can constitute their own architecture that carries emotion, knowledge and the ability to connect and transform. Curated by Jeannette Bisschops, this performance is part of the exhibition ‘Woo, Woo, Woo’.

Through its annual Curatorial Exchange, EXPO CHICAGO remains one of the nation’s only fairs with a dedicated initiative focused on funding global curator exchanges that foster future collaborations for curators on the local, national and international level.

About the artists

Curator Jeanette Bisschops explores paradoxes between art and social change, psychology and technology, and states of relationships between artists, art workers and institutions. Her research plays out across modalities, as a curator, programmer, and a writer.

Five Dutch curators participate in the annual Curatorial Exchange Program at EXPO Chicago: Johan Gustavsson (Co-director & curator at 1646), Manique Hendricks (Curator at the Frans Hals Museum), Yasmijn Jarram (Curator at the Kunstmuseum Den Haag), Vincent van Velsen (Curator at the Stedelijk Museum), and Rieke Vos (Curator at the Teylers Museum).
