The Contemporary Austin

Rooftop Architecture & Design Film Series
The New Rijksmuseum
Wednesday, October 7, and Thursday, October 8
The decade-long renovation of Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum, one of the world's preeminent art museums, was opposed by unyielding counterforces that transformed Rembrandt's palace into a building site. Oeke Hoogendijk filmed behind closed doors for ten years to create this epic documentary about ambition, the love of art, and the typically Dutch decision-making process, culminating in the emotional homecoming of the museum's masterpieces.
(2014, 130 min.)
Picnics are welcome, with food and drink also available for cash purchase from Royal Blue Grocery.
Roof opens at 6:30P, Film at 7:30P
