Coming Up: Gus Van Sant

Instead of a comprehensive calendar, I’m spotlighting upcoming events of particular interest. If you host events, email details to

The New York Academy of Art‘s 2010–2011 Fellows’ exhibit, “Future Perfect,” is at the school’s Wilkinson Gallery on Franklin.

Fashion’s Night Out, wherein fashion lines and boutiques host events and make special offers. Participating around here: A Uno Tribeca, Gary Graham, Patron of the New, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Otte, Nili Lotan, Erin Fetherston, Thom Browne (the man himself will appear at 8:30 p.m.; RSVP info in image at top), and Tribeca Issey Miyake. For details, go to and search Tribeca.

“Plastics,” a show of work by Kiseok Kim, is at Hionas Gallery.

Gus Van Sant screens his new film, Restless, at 92YTribeca: “Annabel Cotton (Mia Wasikowska) is a beautiful and charming terminal cancer patient with a deep love of life and the natural world.  Enoch Brae (Henry Hopper) is a young man who has dropped out of the business of living, after an accident claimed his parents’ lives. When these two outsiders chance to meet at a funeral, they find an unexpected common ground in their unique experiences of the world.” There’ll be a Q&A afterward.

At RH Gallery: “Pitch,” the “American debut solo exhibition for South African artist Paul Edmunds” And a group show, “Melodymania,” which means “the common experience of having a song stuck in your head.” Artists include Matthew Barney, Bruce Nauman, Soledad Arias, and Mark Seliger.

Kids’s clothing swap and textile recycling at Tribeca Greenmarket (11 a.m.–4 p.m.): “Bring your clean, dry, unwanted textiles to Tribeca Greenmarket to be recycled by Wearable Collections, which sorts and redistributes materials to secondhand clothing markets, rag makers and fiber recyclers. Also, bring gently used kids’ clothing and swap it with others for free. (Preteen sizes only.) Unclaimed clothing will be recycled by Wearable Collections at the end of the day.”

Midnight Run, which some people consider a classic of the odd-couple genre, screens at 92YTribeca—and Charles Grodin himself will appear for a post-film Q&A.

Soho Photo‘s October shows include “Haiti = Survival” by Tequila Minsky: “Minsky had arrived in Port-au-Prince five hours before the earthquake struck on January 12, 2010, having just spent almost a week in the countryside with a delegation visiting a peasant farmer association. The rest, of course, is history, especially since Minsky’s images of the devastation were among the first to be published, on the NY Times blog—three hours after the quake—and then in the Times’s morning edition. Her exhibition at Soho Photo includes images of the disaster, as it was unfolding, the immediate aftermath, and then Haiti six months later.” Also on view: Eugene Goldin’s “Through Spain,” Jeanne Hamilton’s “Around Town in the ’80s,” and Ruth Formanek’s “Humanoids.”
