'NYC, What Moves You?' Exhibition Opening Party

Wednesday, May 22, 2024 • 5–7PM, Free!
Drop–Ins Welcome, No RSVP Needed

All are welcome at The Bronx Museum for the Opening Party of the exhibition NYC, What Moves You?.

This exhibition was curated by participants in the Museum’s Spring 2024 session of Teen Council. Teen Council invited artists aged 13–19 who live in NYC to submit work to an open call on the theme of “inspiration.” Then the Teen Council collectively selected and installed work for the exhibition, which is on view through June 16, 2024.

So come on over to the Museum and be inspired by these talented young artists and curators! NYC, What Moves You? is located on the second floor of the Museum, and you can catch the exhibition Bronx Calling: The Sixth AIM Biennial (Part Two) on the first floor.

About Teen Council

Teen Council is a four-month paid internship for New York City high school students (ages 14-19), offered in both the fall and the spring.

Created in 2005, Teen Council offers opportunities for young people to engage deeply with contemporary art and the museum space. In this intensive after-school program, teens discuss and express ideas and create art relating to issues affecting young people today. Participants also gain experience in collaboration, communication, and curation.  Teens may participate in one or both sessions each year.

Teen Council is a paid opportunity. Projects during each cohort may include:

  • Meeting and interviewing contemporary artists
  • Curating in-person and digital art exhibitions
  • Creating work for and publishing a zine
  • Collaborating with other teen groups
  • Exploring The Bronx Museum’s current exhibitions and developing interpretive materials
