What is Teens Curate Teens?  Who can submit?

Teens Curate Teens is an exhibition of artwork made by High School Artists from New York City. A group of High School Curators (TRaC teens) will select 20-25 artworks to be exhibited at the Dedalus Foundation in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. ALL submissions will be displayed in an online gallery like this one from Teens Curate Teens 2014.

What about site-specific proposals?

TCT_fy14Site-specific proposals respond to and relate to the exhibition space while also addressing the theme of Migration, Transitions, Traditions.

A site-specific proposal should describe what the artwork in the space will look like–what is made of, how it will be installed. This may take the form of writing and/or sketches, along with one example of your original artwork.  Please remember to also submit an application form (page 2) with your proposal.

See the guidelines on page 3 of the Teens Curate Teens application for more information.
