February 6–May 8
The New Museum’s Experimental Study Program pairs youths (fifteen to twenty years old) with artists to collaborate on projects and research related to Season themes. Over several months, teens and New Museum staff will undergo an intensive exploration of VOICE as framed by Jeanine Oleson and Brooke O’Harra, including examining private and public forms of language and engaging students in activating performative components of both artists’ work.

All teen participants have been selected for the spring  program. Information about the summer program will be released soon. Contact gclass@newmuseum.org or 212.219.1222 x231 with questions or if you would like to be notified about future opportunities.
