Exhibitions and Events
Entitled The Persistence of Memory, this thematic group exhibition features work by 23 teen artists from the CTC cohort. Asked to explore the concepts of memory and nostalgia, the teens responded in myriad forms including painting, mixed-media pieces, installations, and video work. The work presented in The Persistence of Memory explores many facets of remembrance, including commemorative pieces that celebrate past guardians and caregivers, painting series that highlight the significance of food to cultural memory, profound childhood recollections reproduced on canvas, images of places or journeys that provoke nostalgia, explorations of the purpose of collective memory, and work that recalls experiences of personal growth and loss. This exhibition showcases the efforts of the CUE Teen Collective, and marks the conclusion of their time in the collective over the term. With behind-the-scenes access to the New York art world, the CTC demystifies career paths available to students, while inspiring them to develop their own personal artistic voices.
