This spring, the New Museum will again offer its semester-long program for young people ages fifteen to twenty. Fifteen participants will meet every Thursday, 4–6 p.m., from February 4 to April 21. The eleven-session program, now in its sixth season, offers teens the chance to learn about contemporary art, engage directly with artists, and participate in intimate, critical discussions about culture. Through close work with peers and interactive workshops, students have the opportunity to collaborate meaningfully with artists in residence at the New Museum.

This season the Experimental Study Program will explore LEGACY as a theme, tackling the ways and means by which our connections to the past are produced, fabricated, and renewed, particularly in fashion and art history.

The Museum seeks applications from people between ages fifteen and twenty who are curious about contemporary art and enthusiastic about connecting with other teens.

The Experimental Study Program is free.
