On view on the first floor of the Jones Center on Congress Avenue, John Bock's "Dead + Juicy" centers around a film newly commissioned by the Contemporary Austin that was shot in and around Austin. Labeled an "uncanny musical" by the artist, the film blends classic westerns and dark comedy with spooky thriller and horror aesthetics. The film will be accompanied by an exhibition of what the artist calls a "sum mutation"-an installation of reconfigured sculptures created for the film, reconstructed in stage-like environments in the first-floor galleries.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 18, 2018.
