By PAUL LASTER, November 2020
Presenting 106 galleries from 25 different countries, the inaugural edition of Intersect Chicago, which runs through November 12, offers objects of art and design in a wide variety of materials by an international mix of contemporary artists and designers.
Perusing the virtual fair, replacing the venerable SOFA Chicago for the 2020 edition due to COVID-19, we’ve chosen 25 works that we want to add to our collection—ranging from paintings by emerging African artists Anjel and Kelechi Nwaneri and sculptures by the established Roy Lichtenstein and Kiki Smith to surreal ceramics by Judy Fox and Jiha Moon and fascinating photos and collages by Sarah Charlesworth and Della Wells.
