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 Monday February 2, 2015, for a professional development seminar for high school teachers related to the upcoming 2015 Triennial, “Surround Audience,” at the New Museum, on view from February 25 through May 24, 2015.
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 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.
