Floor 3, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater
Speak up, speak out! In this youth summit organized by the Whitney’s Youth Insights (YI) Leaders, NYC teens are invited to share their ideas about issues that matter to them. Inspired by the rich history of activism presented in the exhibition An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1940–2017, YI Leaders have developed art-making projects, discussions, and guided tours that will help their peers with strategies to confront the political and social issues that are most important to them.
Badlands Unlimited, a New York-based independent publisher founded by the artist Paul Chan, will lead a workshop during the summit. Their work is on view in An Incomplete History of Protest. Artist and educator Shaun Leonardo will lead a series of performance-workshops that engage a variety of political and social issues.
Free for teens. Upon entering the Museum, pick up a ticket in the lobby and head up to the Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater on Floor 3.
The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
