Teen Art Salon

A Protospective


This fall, MoMA PS1 hosts a presentation in Homeroom of artworks made by ten alumni of Teen Art Salon, a Long Island City-based organization that provides resources and visibility to early-career artists ages 11 to 19. Continuing the organization’s relationship with PS1, Teen Art Salon: A Protospective includes a collection of sketchbooks and works on paper that grapple with the revelry and hurdles of adolescence. Bringing together new artwork and a selection of works produced over the past decade by teenagers—materials that are often infantilized as “juvenilia”—the presentation underscores the role of young people as both spectators and arbiters of visual culture, archiving a coming-of-age story in real time.

MoMA PS1 presents Leslie Martinez’s (b. 1985, McAllen, Texas) first New York museum exhibition. Martinez, who lived in New York City for fifteen years before returning to Texas in 2019, exhibits their largest body of work to date, which features recent paintings and three newly commissioned large-scale artworks. Using a cosmic palette based on the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) color model, the artist sprays and stains canvases with diluted paint, and then folds, pools, and collages materials onto the surface—including rags and dried acrylics.
