One day late but twice as nice, here are my picks from this weekend’s openings. Today’s juicy news: Tony Wight Gallery will be moving next year to a new location, 845 West Washington Boulevard. Don’t worry, its just around the block. Speaking of moves, ebersmoore (formally Ebersb9) is closing its current show by opening its doors for the first time tonight at their new West Loop location, 6-9 PM @ 213 N Morgan #3C. The new space looks great.

Zombies @ Antena

With a fall theme and work from just about everyone in the city, Antena’s Edra Soto curated Zombies: A Mindless Affair looks like it’ll be a fun show down in Pilsen. On the project wall space is Irene Pérez – wish her goodbye and good luck, as she’ll be celebrating the exhibition this week by moving to Spain. Opening reception Friday, October 23rd, 6-10 PMAntena1765 S Lauflin, 1R.

John Chiara and Sean McFarland @ Swimming Pool Project Space

Fresh physically static work this weekend at the Swimming Pool Project Space in Albany Park, with work from John Chiara, who is apparently too cool for negatives and directly exposes his photos instead; and the phenomenal collaged and rephotographed work of Sean McFarland. Show opens Saturday, October 24th, 6-10 PM @ Swimming Pool Project Space, 2858 W. Montrose.
