Connect started as a three-day pop-up art fair spanning the intersection of visual + performing art, designed objects, film, music, fashion and literary culture.
Occupying three different exhibition spaces/storefronts in Downtown Hyde Park, Connect Art Fair included live performances, DJs, independent films, and pop up exhibitions, giving the audience an opportunity to explore, engage and connect with some of Chicago's leading artists, curators and art institutions within the burgeoning Hyde Park neighborhood. The pop-up fair attracted thousands of visitors and was recognized by The Chicago Reader as the "Best Public Art Fair" in Chicago.
Following the success of the Connect Art Fair and our drive to present art as an agent for change we bring you the Connect Gallery in Hyde Park.
