All Tomorrow’s Art Parties: antena, Spoke, Schneider Gallery
The Man won’t keep Lloyd Dobler Gallery down, director Patricia Courson tells me via e-mail. Despite a visit from the police last weekend, due to what the city claims was an “anonymous complaint,” Courson says the Wicker Park space will maintain normal hours (Thursdays, 6–9pm; Saturdays, noon–5pm) for its new show “Middleground,” which closes July 25. “We have a court date in August and I'll just have to see how everything plays out,” she adds.
What else is happening in the art world this weekend? Check the Art & Design listings for myriad openings and other events—and our slideshow for a sneak peek of what’s on view. Here are a few items that didn’t make it into print:
In Pilsen, antena’s “Summer Show” opens tonight from 6–10pm with drawings by Saul Aguirre, and installations by Yarima Ariza and Adriana Baltazar. In the West Loop, Spoke presents Claire Ashley’s inflatabubble from 5–7pm. Polaroids will be given to anyone who interacts with the inflatable “architectural fragment.” In River North, Schneider Gallery’s “A Glance at Photography” opens from 5–7:30pm with recent work by Ian van Coller, John Metoyer, Helmut Horn and Lou Raizin.
As for tomorrow, devening projects + editions kept “Dorothee Joachim: letting color” open an extra week, so you can see it from noon–6pm, and Intuit, which is open Saturdays from 11am–5pm, has extended its excellent show “The Picture Tells the Story: The Drawings of Joseph E. Yoakum” until January 9, 2010.
