Teen Apprentices Reflect on the Temporary Center for Translation

New Museum Teen Apprentices, Emelia K. Ho and Suzanne Tang, reflect on the seemingly paradoxical nature of translation through the lens of the Temporary Center for Translation and their personal exchanges with a visiting group from Inhotim in Brazil.

Temporary Center for Translation

The Temporary Center for Translation is a site for pedagogical exchange founded on the importance of translation as a mode for thinking, making, and doing. In the associated lesson, students explore how language functions in the transference of information from one state into another through close examination of two of the artworks presented in the Center.




The New Museum's mission is to promote New Art and New Ideas. The Global Classroom (G:Class) utilizes the Museum as a resource to enhance learning and engage high school students through the exploration of contemporary art connecting to local, global, and cultural issues that affect their lives.
