The completely sustainable, Parisian sneaker VEJA is making its official debut in New York with a month-long pop-up at ANTHOM in SoHo.
The sneaker has been a hit in France for ten years, but is just making its way to New York. For men and women, they're the the preferred kicks of French street artists….and Marion Cotillard has called them her favorite brand alongside Dior.
This pop-up shop will be the first time the complete collection of VEJA sneakers will be in New York.

7:30pm at The Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Solomon R. Gugge, $40, $35 for members and Friends of Works & Pr
On Monday, September 26, 2016 at 7:30pm, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents a discussion with the creators and excerpts of Steppenwolf Theatre Company's The Fundamentals by Erika Sheffer prior to the play’s world premiere on November 10.
A Steppenwolf commission, The Fundamentals explores America’s corporate culture through its main character, Millie, a resourceful young mother and housekeeper at a New York luxury hotel. When an opportunity in management gives her the chance to leave her blue-collar life behind, she is faced with how much, and who, she is willing to sacrifice.
4 - 6pm at Garis & Hahn, Free
Please join us for a closing reception for the exhibition reset, on view at Garis & Hahn from September 10-25, 2016, and curated by Kimi Kitada.
Artists include: Fischer Cherry, Sarah Hardie, Ian Hatcher, Jenn Hyland, Eric Pickersgill, Allison L. Wade
The selected works in reset explore our personal interactions, mediated by technology. In Eric Pickersgill’s photographic series, Removed (image above), family members, couples, and individuals are staring at their smartphones, which are imagined and not physically present in the images. The artist reacts to behavioral norms of using one’s smartphone constantly, and focuses our gaze on people who are spending time with one another, yet are disconnected and detached.
