Sotheby's New York will preside over the first Tri-State Heirloom Vegetable Auction.
CIRCUITRY: In the world of Spike Jonze’s crushingly poignant 30-minute short I’m Here, robots have evolved to such a point that they’re able to fall in love. The Where the Wild Things Are director will be on hand at the IFC Center to screen his “robot romance”—an overwhelming Sundance favorite--followed by a Q&A and book signing. (P.S.: I’m Here also screens regularly at imheremovie.com.) 7PM.
TAPESTRY: Kicking off the BAM 2010 Next Wave Festival with the NY premiere of her latest work Delusion, multimedia art-sprite Laurie Anderson weaves together short plays on the themes of identity and memory with a dizzyingly rich soundtrack (this time tapping Arabic strings and Tibetan temple horns). 7:30PM through 9/25; additional dates at BAM.org.
