T.A.G.: Gen Z
Teen Art Gallery
Teen Art Gallery’s 2019 show, TAG: GEN Z, features over fifty high school artists from New York to LA to Toronto. Their body of work—comprising of nearly seventy paintings, photographs, sculptures, videos, and poems—collectively center on their experiences with young adulthood and with “Generation Z.” While the medium and content of their work is quite varied, many pieces express issues such as conflicts with identity, transitions, social and political trends, and the pervasiveness of technology within their society. Through the presentation of these artworks, the show offers a space to voice the desires and concerns of a new generation.
About Teen Art Gallery
Teen Art Gallery (T.A.G.) was founded in 2011 by a high school senior and has been mounting shows of works by people under 20 ever since. Run by a group of high school students, Teen Art Gallery is committed to creating opportunities for young people to share their art with wider audiences. By showing teenagers’ works in professional settings, Teen Art Gallery aims to provide visibility and recognition to work that would otherwise remain unseen. Some of Teen Art Gallery’s previous venues include Creative Time, BravinLee Programs, Salon 94, and 325 West Broadway. Teen Art Gallery’s past shows have received media attention from outlets such as the New York Times, Teen Vogue, Paper and the Huffington Post. In the future, Teen Art Gallery intends to partner up with an organization to donate a percentage of the donations to help fund art programs for teens.
