On Friday, April 7, explore contemporary art at the New Museum during our annual Teen Night, a special evening exclusively for teens! Grab your friends and enjoy live music and teen-led gallery experiences. Create zines and project digital drawings related to the exhibition “Raymond Pettibon: A Pen of All Work.” Then head up to the Sky Room, with its inspiring views of the Manhattan skyline, to design your own t-shirts while you witness the premier of video works produced by teen participants of the Museum’s Experimental Study Program (ESP), in collaboration with artist-in-residence A. K. Burns. Finally, end the evening with a genre-defying dance music performance by DJ, rapper, producer, and vocalist UNIIQU3—first lady of the Jersey club movement!

Teen Night is free and open to teens aged 14–19 with high school or government ID. No preregistration is required. Please leave all backpacks and bags at home! If you need to bring one along, it must be checked on arrival.

The New Museum’s mission is to promote New Art and New Ideas. School and Teen Programs utilize the Museum as a resource to enhance learning and engage high school students through the exploration of contemporary art in relation to local, global, and cultural issues that affect their lives. Visit our School and Teen Programs page for more information.

Teen Night at the New Museum is a teen program developed in collaboration with the NYC Museum Teen Summit. The NYC Museum Teen Summit is a collective of youth leaders who represent different museums in New York dedicated to improving and promoting the role of youths in museums.
