Patterson Sims on 'Anxious Objects' (ART TALK) Before even-keeled Michael Darling, before take-charge Lisa Corrin, before academic Trevor Fairbrother, there was Patterson Sims, the notoriously charming Seattle Art Museum curator who could always get a collector on the phone and an artwork in the museum's vault. Now he's directing the Montclair Museum of Art in New Jersey, where he put together Anxious Objects: Willie Cole's Favorite Brands. The Newark artist's mashups of African, modern, and consumer stuff are visiting the Frye, and Sims is back for a one-night stand. (Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Ave, 622-9250. 7 pm, free.) JEN GRAVES

'Mr. Hulot's Holiday' (FILM) The great French physical comedian and filmmaker Jacques Tati (best known for Playtime, which will screen later in August) first introduced his unforgettable character Monsieur Hulot in this 1953 film. Fans of Lloyd, Chaplin, Keaton--even dumb Mr. Bean, goddammit--should not miss this tale of Hulot at the beach, fucking up everything for everyone and emerging unscathed and lovable in the end. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 267-5380. 7, 9:15 pm, $5-$8.50. Series continues through Aug 16.) ANNIE WAGNER

This looks really fun!

I loved the one called Playtime - it was a SIFF fave of all my friends!
