Weekend Preview – www.sharkforum.org

This weekend’s picks for openings. There are a lot more than what I’m putting here, but here’s what not to try to miss:

Mike Schuh @ GOLDEN

The press info from GOLDEN for Mike Schuh’s Set reads like it might be a harder show to get a mind around than most, descriping videos and sculptures that tilt common objects into unstable philosophical states. For some reason I’m thinking of Lauren Hartke. Those up for the challenge should check out the opening this Friday, April 2nd from 6-9 PMGOLDEN816 W Newport Ave.

Living Room @ Swimming Pool Project Space

Bringing kind of worlds sorta into collision, four collectors have been invited to curate a show from their private collections into some mixed faux-domestic space. Its not as pure as all that, but it should be a good and rare opportunity to see these works from the homes of Curt Conklin, Susan Gesheidle, Jefferson Goddard and Paul Klein without having to take your shoes off. The event opens Saturday, April 3rd from 7-10 PM @ Swimming Pool Project Space, 2858 W Montrose.

And since I’m glad net art has finally(?) started trolling Facebook, let me plug AN OPEN CALL FOR WORK TO BE INCLUDED IN THE EXHIBIT: READY OR NOT IT’S 2010, a move by Chicago’s TheJogging that is currently spamming the hell out of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s wall. Please include county/country typo on resume I guess.
