The 2011 editions of Art Chicago and NEXT will present a more focused vision for the Chicago landmark arts-weekend. Through a combined floor-plan and a joint public program featuring the leading players in the art world, Art Chicago and NEXT are poised to present visitors an unparalleled arts experience with both emerging and established contemporary art in one location

"Art Chicago and NEXT are in top form this year," says Paul Morris, Vice President of MMPI Art Shows and Director of Art Chicago | NEXT. "With a more focused floor-plan, the dual presentation of both fairs will allow our visitors greater access to the art on view and the public programming."

Ken Tyburski, the Curatorial Director of NEXT, notes that "We are thrilled for NEXT to be showing with Art Chicago this year. The energy of the dealers and collectors this year is unlike any I've seen and we feel the synergy of having both fairs occurring alongside each other will really show in the energy, excitement and visitors."
