On December 13, 2013, Youth Insights Leaders welcomed teens from throughout New York City to the Whitney for a tour of Rituals of Rented Island: Loft Performance, Object Theater, and the New Psychodrama—Manhattan, 1970-1980. In the weeks prior to the event, teens selected and researched four works from the exhibition. Before the tours began, Leaders conducted icebreaker games and art-making in the Whitney Studio, then led a series of interactive tours, encouraging guests to engage in performance-based activities in the gallery space.
