It's impossible to avoid the West Loop when talking about Chicago's best art galleries. Though this gallery opened up quietly in February 2006, it has created quite a buzz. Kasia Kay Art Projects brings a quiet, contemplative, and decidedly conceptual addition to Fulton Market, the meat packing district's hotbed of art activity. Installations are definitely the butter to Kasia Kay's bread: paintings, drawings, photography and video.
Maintaining a presence at international art fairs, the gallery represents artists from both the U.S. and Europe. With one of the most beautifully constructed spaces in the city, visitors will marvel at the architectural details, such as a bathroom with a sliding, retractable door, front doors made of glass, and a sleek system of steps into the main room.
