Ever wonder what working an art fair is really like? Follow Artspace's VIP client manager Hannah Flegelman and gallery/institutions director Patton Hindle on their adventures during a week at EXPO CHICAGO

PH3

Day 1. First, a mandatory visit to the bean.

 

PH4

Finally, a chance to check out our impeccable booth. Look at that killer [Lawrence] Weiner wall. (Also, Artspace COO Emmanuele Vinciguerra, equally killer.)

 

PH5

Day 2. Anyone (please, anyone) want to join our three exclusive tours?

 

PH6

What a turn out! Cordy Ryman’s solo booth with Gallery Zürcher was a crowd favorite.

 

 PH7

Day 3. Starting to feel the mid-week slump. How many shots of espresso does one need to function?

 

PH8

Tony Oursler works across a range of mediums: video, sculpture, installation, performance, and painting. Through technology, he explores the human psyche and its emotional disturbances like obsession, isolation, sexual fetish, escapism, and the relationship with computers and virtual platforms that dominate our lives today." Lyla, art historian & tour-guide-show-stealer, aged 21 months.

 

PH9

Our stint in Chicago is going so well we’ve been invited to teach a course next semester at the Aesthetic Institute of Chicago on “The Aesthetic of Aesthetics.” [Ed.'s note: the Aesthetics Institute of Chicago is a plastic-surgery clinic.]

 

PH10

Day 4. Last Day. Time to get weird. Pump up the jam.

 

PH11

736 vinyl letters later, deinstall is complete with a badass girl-band photo.

 

PH12

All was finally peaceful… until we fell asleep and singed our eyebrows in the fire.

That’s a wrap on EXPO CHICAGO 2015.
