Youth-run art organization, Teen Art Gallery is at it again.

The worldwide creative collective, created by teens for teens, is hosting its annual showcase, this year dubbed, “TAG: GEN Z.” The show has grown significantly over the past five years, adding over ten artists to its arsenal.

From the mailbag:

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.

The week-long event starts tomorrow, from 7-9pm, at 222 Bowery, and runs through March 9. More details here.
