Renowned sculptor Robert Therrien uses both floors of the Contemporary Austin’s Jones Center to stage a stunning installation that includes a set of folding chairs and tables, all scaled nearly four times life-size.

Sublime yet also psychologically provocative, Therrien’s over-sized quotidian furniture sets up the transformative possibility of being in another world.

Details: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Through Aug. 30. 700 Congress Ave. $3-$5. 512-453-5312, thecontemporaryaustin.org.
