What We Call Home: Teens Curate the Collection

Curated by The Bronx Museum Teen Council

 

Home is a familiar place where you can find comfort in your surroundings. During the quarantine home has also become a space to learn, grow, build and rest. Each of the artworks we selected depicts our cultures and community as we see them. By showing the perspectives of the less represented lives of the people of New York we are centering the positive aspects of our city: our home.

 

This exhibit was curated by the Bronx Museum's Teen Council in the winter of 2020-21 and features works from the Museum's permanent collection.

 

Support for this exhibition has been generously provided by SRI Fine Arts Services and the Director’s Circle, the Bronx Museum’s premier support group. 

 

Teen Council is made possible, in part, by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, LeRoy Neiman and Janet Byrne Neiman Foundation, and The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation. Education and Community Programs are generously supported by Con Edison, Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation, Francena Harrison Foundation, The Hearst Foundations, New York Yankees Foundation, O'Grady Foundation, William Talbott Hillman Foundation, and New York City Council Member Vanessa L. Gibson, Council Member Diana Ayala, and Council Member Ruben Diaz Sr.

 

What We Call Home/ Lo que llamamos hogar: Jóvenes curadores presentan una muestra de nuestra colección permanente

 

El hogar es un lugar que se nos hace familiar donde una persona se encuentra cómoda con lo que le rodea. Durante la cuarentena el hogar se ha vuelto un espacio donde aprender y crecer, crear y descansar. Cada una de las obras que seleccionamos representan nuestras cultura y comunidades como las vemos. Al mostrar las perspectivas de las vidas con menos representación en la ciudad de Nueva York nos dedicamos a prestarle atención a los aspectos positivos de nuestra ciudad: nuestro hogar.

 

La curaduría de esta muestra estuvo a cargo del Concejo de jóvenes del Bronx durante el invierno del 2020-21 y presenta obras de la colección permanente del museo.

 

El apoyo para esta muestra ha sido otorgado generosamente por SRI Fine Arts Services y el Director’s Circle, el grupo principal de apoyo de Bronx Museum.
