Picnics, Art, and Architecture: Outdoor Movies at Austin’s Jones Center

by Paula Newton March 21, 2016

JonesCenterRoofSpring has officially sprung and, in Texas, that usually means we only have a few more weeks until we start complaining about the heat and avoid going outside. So get out there now!

The Contemporary Austin continues its Rooftop Architecture & Design Film Series presented on its Jones Center rooftop deck.

This week (Wednesday, March 23 and Thursday, March 24 at 8:15pm) it will be showing Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art (2016, 72 min.), featuring the likes of Carl Andre, Walter De Maria, Nancy Holt, and Robert Smithson and rare interviews with other rebels from the 1960s and 70s earth art scene.

In mid-April (Wednesday, April 13 and Thursday, April 14 at 8:15pm), it will show Barbicania (2014, 90 min.), by Europe’s cult architectural filmmakers Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine. The documentary is an intimate, lively filmic map of a month-long immersion in London’s Barbican Arts Centre and Estate.

The roof opens at 7pm. Picnics are welcome; food and drink also available for cash purchase. Admission is free for members and $10 for non-members.
