Director’s Welcome

As the Gallery celebrates its 40th anniversary, we continue to pursue our mission of presenting and supporting the leading edge of contemporary art, architecture, and design through compelling exhibitions, dynamic programs, and multifaceted support for arts practitioners. An integral part of both the University of Illinois at Chicago’s and the city of Chicago’s vibrant contemporary arts scene, Gallery 400 is uniquely poised to offer innovative programming that connects the art of today to scholarship and debate.

Gallery 400 has presented more than 1,000 artists in its exhibitions and programs since its founding in 1983. In so doing, we strive to make complex works and ideas accessible to a broad spectrum of the public, advance and cultivate a variety of cultural and intellectual perspectives, and foster an interdisciplinary understanding of the visual arts.

Welcome to the Gallery’s virtual presence. I hope it engages and stimulates you. Please come back often, visit us in person, and stay connected with this site and our programming.
