The EXPOSURE section, installed on the main floor of the exposition, features solo and two-artist presentations represented by galleries eight years and younger, allowing the opportunity for younger galleries to participate in a major international exposition. For the first time, EXPOSURE will be curated, and will be selected by Director of Exhibitions and Senior Curator at Dallas Contemporary Justine Ludwig.  
“The emerging galleries in EXPOSURE offer curated presentations of the artists they work with and take full advantage of the platform of EXPO CHICAGO—introducing their program to new audiences,” said Ludwig. “The challenge and pleasure of the process was putting together a selection that reflects the breadth of contemporary artistic practice. Each gallery and the artists they represent address timely issues and innovative explorations of diverse media and it has been an amazing opportunity to learn about different gallery programs while discovering new artists which I look forward to introducing to EXPO CHICAGO audiences.”
