This fall, the New Museum will offer its semester-long program for young people ages fifteen to twenty. Twelve participants will meet every Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. between October 8 and December 10. The nine-session program will offer teens the chance to learn about contemporary art, work directly with artists, and engage in critical discussions about culture. Through close work with peers and interactive workshops, participants will collaborate with the New Museum’s artists in residence, including Gerard & Kelly, as well as the Brooklyn-based performance project Aunts. 

The Museum seeks applications from people aged between fifteen and twenty that are curious about contemporary art and enthusiastic about connecting with other teens. The program is free.
