Teens Curate Teens
In partnership with:
2017 Theme: Borders
Voices of teen artists and curators are central to ArtsConnection Teens Curate Teens exhibitions in response to issues in our community. Created by teens, the Spring 2017 exhibition will look at what borders mean to us collectively and as individuals.
Borders can describe or relate to many things, including geography, politics, culture, and art making. They may be interpreted in a variety of ways—as a way to connect people or to separate them, as an outline, delineation, a marker of what belongs and what doesn’t. They can be spaces of threat or exclusion, or they can sometimes provide a space to exist and thrive.
IM/PERMEABLE is a teen-curated exhibition of artworks by teen artists that explores the idea of borders. Borders can be spaces of exclusion or diffusion, or they can provide an opportunity to thrive. Political, emotional, personal and physical borders arise everywhere – they are complicated and this exhibition looks at the many ways we experience them.
