On Friday, April 15, explore contemporary art at the New Museum during our annual Teen Night, a special evening exclusively for teens! Grab your friends, and come to the Museum for live music and teen-led gallery experiences. View the current exhibitions, and witness the debut of a teen fashion line created by participants of the Museum’s Experimental Study Program (ESP) in collaboration with artist in residence Cheryl Donegan. Then head up to the Sky Room, with its amazing views of the Manhattan skyline, for a concert by Patrick “Wiki” Morales. A disciplined student of the cypher, Wiki, who grew up in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, credits his lyrical muscle to his grade school days, when he learned to rap and write with friends and math teachers alike. In 2011 he formed New York’s Ratking with current members MC HAK and Sporting Life, and in 2015 he released his first solo album on the record label the Famous Letter Racer.
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.
