Gallery Background:

Western Exhibitions was conceived in 2002 as a nomadic commercial gallery, staging shows at apartments, lofts, other galleries and participating in the 2nd and 3rd iterations of the influential Stray Show. In 2004, director (and ex-artist) Scott Speh first opened a bricks-and-mortar space on Chicago's west side and moved to Chicago's main contemporary gallery district, the West Loop, in 2008. Western Exhibitions has since continued as a commercial contemporary art gallery, representing a varied roster of conceptually-minded and visually innovative artists. In addition to gallery artist shows, Western Exhibitions presents unique artist projects, curated group shows and maintains a specific inventory of artist books and multiples, gathered together as a sister entity and website, WesternXeditions.
