1. In "Packedsockdrawer," New York stalwart Feature challenges itself with the task of installing a pair of pieces by each of four artists, each working in a different medium, on the four walls of a single room. Steve McCall, a new member of the gallery's stable, represents "painting" with two pieces, including Projection #1, an oil on canvas. The three other walls show drawing, photography, and sculpture. July12–September 5; 212-675-7772; featureinc.com.
2. Living and working in Beijing, Wang Ningde emerges from China's generation of contemporary photographers exploring their constantly changing homeland—his conceptual images explore connections between memory and present reality. The bicyclists in Some Days #30 are among his "sleeping" subjects, people posed with their eyes closed. They're appearing in "The Photographs of Wang Ningde" at SFCamerawork in San Francisco. June 7–August 25; 415-512-2020; sfcamerawork.org.
3. The first collaboration between three Connecticut institutions—Ridgefield's Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Hartford's Real Art Ways, and New Haven's Artspace—"50,000 Beds: A Project by Chris Doyle" debuts at the latter. Doyle commissioned 45 international artists to make short videos set in a local hotel, motel, or inn, and Judi Werthein chose the Interlaken Inn of Lakeville to shoot On Reading. Taken together, the project's range is as vast as the narrative potential of a room for the night. July 20–September 3; 203-438-4519; 50000beds.net.
4. The younger of the two International Expositions of Sculpture Objects & Functional Art, SOFA New York celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. The event brings 58 international dealers of contemporary furniture, ceramics, glass, textiles, art, and jewelry to the Park Avenue Armory, where the city's Joan B. Mirviss is showing a decorative stoneware piece by Akiyama Yo. June 1-3; 773-506-8860; sofaexpo.com.
5. At the Kunsthaus Bregenz in Austria, Joseph Beuys provided the theme for "Mythos," a selection of work by Cy Twombly, Douglas Gordon, and Matthew Barney. This C-print comes from Cremaster 1: Orchidella, part of Barney's five-part multimedia project exploring the transcendence of physical limitations.
