Weekend Preview – there must be some mistake

This week’s weekend picks. There aren’t that many other listings, but for more check out this link and also this one.

Carrie Gundersdorf @ MCA

I can’t be the only one surprised that Carrie Gundersdorf hasn’t already taken part in the UBS 12×12 series at the Museum of Contemporary Art, but I guess she hasn’t since she’ll be this month’s 12×12 artist for what I assume to be the first time. Gundersdorf’s big star-field paintings and drawings look great together, and it should be fun to see a dedicated solo in the 12×12 space. The event goes public on Saturday, but the reception can is Friday, August 6th at 6PM @ The Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E Chicago Ave.

Mark Porter @ Spoke

Spoke is having a little week-long show of Mark Porter‘s kinetic sculptures and diagram drawings. I think I remember his name from the Mini Dutch archives, so it’ll be nice to see what he’s been up to since. The show, titled Replication Machines, Territorial Markers and Preliminary Drawings, opens Friday, August 6th from 6-9PM @ Spoke, 119 N Peoria St, 3D.

Public Works 2 @ Andrew Rafacz Gallery

The annual design show Public Works returns to Andrew Rafacz’s space this week, giving the West Loop crowd another examination of the points of contact between the artwork made to sell itself and visual media made to sell something else. Artists/groups presented include Dan Funderburgh, Sonnenzimmer, Mike Perry, and Seripop, and the show opens Friday, August 6th from 4-7PM @ Andrew Rafacz Gallery, 835 W Washington.
