This semester-long program offers teens the chance to learn about contemporary art, work directly with artists, and engage in critical discussions about culture.
Join us on Tuesday, November 3, for a professional development seminar for high school teachers that will address the New Museum’s Fall 2015 R&D (Research and Development) Season theme of PERSONA. This Season considers the ways and means by which we craft and present ourselves to others, while exploring the roles that the media, celebrity culture, politics, theater, and art play across the spectrum of subjecthood from “self” to “character."
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.
The New Museum Teen Apprentice Program offers students aged 16-19 work experience and exposure to contemporary art and ideas through on the job training, career-development workshops and talks, field trips to relevant arts institutions, and group projects.
