July 7th - August 4th, 2016
Opening reception: Thursday, July 7th, 7-10pm
with special program of performances, Alt Space pop-up store, and party on the rooftop hosted by Nicky Ottav
Czech Center New York and Marie Tomanova present art from established and emerging artists, designers, performers and musicians who address, participate in, reflect, shape, and are shaped by contemporary youth culture. The exhibiting artists, using a variety of media, elucidate where youth culture has been and where it is going, and explore youth's social, political, personal and formal contexts. With a surge of interest about youth in the art market and art world, with a growing presence on on-line media channels, YOUTH EXPLOSION: The New Bohemia brings together the artists under one roof to celebrate the new bohemia! Inspired by MoMa PS1 and events that create a dynamic youth culture energy, we will take over the building of Czech Center New York and create a new bohemia!
