The Art of Hiding, for Teens

The Contemporary Austin will host an evening for teens celebrating the art of hiding, as if teenagers don’t have that skill mastered already, at an event called Le Caché: A Masked Celebration of the Art of Hiding. Using the French word for “hidden,” Le Cache is a perhaps genius move, at once calling teenagers out on the fact that they are at the most sneaky stage in their lives, and giving them license to be just that. Making masks under black lights and hiding in a photo booth are all good arenas for acting out an adolescent need for darkness in tight spaces. Or something.

Also expect a pop-up art show and stop-motion animation station hosted by The Edge of Imagination Station.

This Frenchy action goes down next Saturday, April, April 19, 5-7, Jones Center, 700 Congress Ave.
