Aspen Art Museum


Movies at the Museum

Presenting a wide range of themes, film screenings at the AAM reveal important perspectives of filmmakers and artists of our time.

Movies at the Museum is presented in collaboration with Aspen Film free of charge on the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden.

This spring, the AAM and Aspen Film present the film program “Before and After Desire,” inspired by the exhibition of Nate Lowman’s work at the AAM. Exploring the quests and consequences of longing through a cinematic lens, these films span the timeframe of the works surveyed in the exhibition as well as our deepest desires to connect with our surroundings.
