The Contemporary Austin – Jones Center

The Contemporary Austin presents new and innovative exhibitions and installations by preeminent contemporary artists from around the world.

As Austin’s only museum solely focused on contemporary artists and their work, The Contemporary Austin offers exhibitions, educational opportunities, and events that start conversations and fuel the city’s creative spirit. Known for artist-centric exhibitions and collaborations, The Contemporary invites exploration in both its urban and natural settings-downtown at the Jones Center, lakeside at the Laguna Gloria campus, and around Austin through the Museum Without Walls program.

2020-21 Exhibitions include the Suzanne Deal Booth /FLAG Art Foundation Prize exhibition Nicole Eisenman: Sturm und Drang (February 27 – November 15, 2020), Deborah Roberts: I’m (January 23 – August 15, 2021), and Torbjørn Rødland: Bible Eye (January 23 – August 15, 2021).
