Weekend Preview – embrace it

Here are my picks for what to see this weekend. Its the end of summer and there isn’t much, but more listings can be found here and here.

B.C. MacEachran @ ebersmoore

It was only 14 months ago that ebersmoore (then ebersb9) opened its first show, an exhibition of B.C. MacEachran‘s paintings titled Shooting Stars. It was among the first shows I reviewed here at Chicago Art Review, so with MacEachran’s second show at the ebersmoore coming up this weekend I can’t help but think of it as a slightly late anniversary for many parties. McEachran’s paintings are still gorgeous little pattern works, and the show (titled The Big Gray Con) opens Friday, August 13th from 6-9PM @ ebersmoore, 213 N Morgan St, 3C.

WHO’S YR SHAMAN? @ Johalla Projects

Melissa Marinaro curated this group show about religion, spiritualism and ritual in contemporary art, which features work by Elijah Burgher, Sara Fagala, Terence Hannum, Chad Harrison, Ivan Lozano, Adam Ludwig and Rebecca Walz. Burgher’s been getting buzz lately and Hannum is fucking hardcore, so it’d be alone worth spotting if you haven’t seen one or the other yet. The show opens Friday, August 13th from 7-11PM @ Johalla Projects, 1561 N Milwaukee Ave.

Feeble Intimacy @ LVL3 Gallery

LVL3 Gallery is back in business after a quick summer vacation and directorial eurotour, and is starting things off with a show titled Feeble Intimacy which will attempt to analogize representation art theories with personal relationship dynamics (I think) through the work of Liz Nielsen (director of the always cool Swimming Pool Project Space), Kate Ruggeri and Brendan Sullivan. The show opens Saturday, August 14th from 5-9PM @ LVL3, 1452 N Milwaukee Ave, 3. LVL3 also has a thing going on at their space in the Merchandise Mart, which you can read about here.
