MdW, an artist-run art fair founded ten years ago is returning in 2022 with a renewed mission to convene alternative artist platforms in Chicago from across the Midwest. MdW is FREE, all-ages, and open to the public.

Over 100 artist-led projects will convene to present their projects at Mana Contemporary Chicago to support each other across hyperlocal scenes and build pathways for lasting coalitions of purposeful, artist-led action. Two giant floors of the building will be filled with pavilions from 6 central midwestern states, art booths, publisher tables, and installations will be interspersed with open programming platforms like a print lab, screening space, presentation space and more.
