Teens! On Friday June 15, take a break from Regents week at the New Museum. Grab your friends and come for an evening of live music, gallery conversations, button-making, and other hands-on activities during the first ever Teen Night at the New Museum. Explore exhibitions by Phyllida Barlow, Klara Lidén, and Carlos Motta and discuss your ideas in conversations led by and for teens. Design unique buttons and then head up to the 7th floor Sky Room to experience the wild world of performance artist, poet, and hip-hop musician Mykki Blanco accompanied by DJ Physical Therapy.
Teen Night is free and open to teens aged 14–19 with high school or government ID. No preregistration is required.
