THE MISSION represents artists from the United States and Latin America, promoting an international dialogue through a diverse program of provocative solo exhibitions and group shows.
Since 2010, THE MISSION has presented pioneering exhibitions of innovative contemporary and historical art, including numerous US debuts for influential artists from South America. Exploring distinctive cultural, social and historical contexts, THE MISSION advocates for artists that shape, inform and challenge contemporary art across media and genres. THE MISSION is dedicated to supporting artistic experimentation and forging new exchanges between artists and audiences throughout the Americas.
Located below the main gallery, THE SUB-MISSION is an alternative installation project space dedicated to the development of artists living and working in Chicago. Established in 2012, THE SUB-MISSION is a proposal-based exhibition space created to foster the investigation of new ideas and artistic processes and to facilitate an exchange between artists and the artistic community.
THE MISSION does not accept unsolicited portfolios.
