Teens Curate Teens
Teens Curate Teens is a free out-of-school program that brings together NYC public high school artists and curators to produce an art exhibition based on a theme each Spring.
2018 Theme: What About Us?
The Spring 2018 Exhibition will explore the ways in which you think, believe, and understand the world, and the life experiences that may have shifted your perspective along the way.

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.
ArtsConnection Teen Advisory Council invites you to join us for the opening reception of the exhibition on Saturday, May 13. Explore the themes from the exhibition through art-making activities, engaging discussions, and live performances. Meet the exhibition artists and curators, celebrate the end of the Teen Reviewers and Critics semester, and enjoy local food and giveaways. All welcome!
