Do Ho Suh installs a fishing net in Austin, Raymond Pettibon leaves his mark on New York City streetwear, An-My Lê exhibits a magnum opus in the UK, and more in this roundup of ART21-featured artists.

  • Do Ho Suh has created a multipart installation, combining existing work with newly commissioned pieces, for The Contemporary Austin (Austin, TX). The exhibition includes the final unit in Suh’s series of transparent rooms and passageways, 348 West 22nd Street, and features Net-Work (pictured above), inspired by the fishing nets in a traditional Japanese seaside village, and currently installed on a floating barge. Closes January 11, 2015.
  • Allora & Calzadilla’s multimedia exhibition Fault Lines is at the Gladstone Gallery (New York, NY). The focal point is a new performance-based work, featuring an original composition by Guarionex Morales-Matos and young male vocalists from the American Boychoir School and the Transfiguration Boychoir. Closes October 11.
  • Rashid Johnson has a two-part exhibition, Islands, at David Kordansky Gallery (Los Angeles, CA). In new wall- and floor-based sculptures, Johnson takes a cue from Richard Wright’s novel Native Son, “and its antiheroic characterization of the African-American male.” Closes October 29.
  • Select works from four major series by An-My Lê are on view at the MK Gallery (Milton Keynes, UK). One highlight of the show is “the most comprehensive showing yet of Events Ashore (2005-2014), a magnum opus, ten years in the making, which depicts the US navy on missions across the globe.” Closes November 23.
  • Eddie Martinez’s solo exhibition Nomader—featuring new paintings, sculpture, and works on paper—is at Michael Kohn Gallery (Los Angeles, CA). The exhibition draws from “a wide-range of sources, from the ever-evolving landscape of New York City to major art historical movements of the 20th century…” Closes October 25.
