Join us on Friday March 22 to start your midwinter break off right! Grab your friends and come for an evening of postapocalyptic disco exotica, relational aesthetics, and art that your parents might hate during Teen Night at the New Museum. Explore the exhibition “NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star,” then share your ideas in conversations led by teens. Eat Cup Noodles from a canoe, and head up to the Seventh Floor Sky Room to hear Prince Rama perform the top ten hits of 2047 AD.

Teen Night is FREE and open to teens aged 14–19 with high school or government ID. No preregistration is required.


Teen Night at the New Museum is a Global Classroom program developed in collaboration with the NYC Museum Teen Summit. Global Classroom is the New Museum’s interdisciplinary art education program.

Global Classroom empowers youth to think critically about global issues and develop their own cultural perspectives, and provides resources for professional educators to carry this forward. For more information, visit
