New York City teens

New York City teens are invited to the Whitney to explore the 2019 Whitney Biennial! Featuring seventy-five artists and collectives working in painting, sculpture, installation, film and video, photography, performance, and sound, the 2019 Biennial takes the pulse of the contemporary artistic moment.

Join Biennial artist Maia Ruth Lee for a discussion about her artistic practice and a workshop where teens will create their own talismans, powerful objects that influence and protect emotions. Youth Insights Leaders will lead interactive gallery activities, discussions, and art-making projects.

Free for teens. Upon entering the Museum, pick up a ticket in the lobby. Refreshments and art materials provided. No RSVP required—bring a friend!
