The Bronx Museum Teen Council Presents
Dreams and Nightmares
Nightmares and unexplainable dreams have often been sources for art. The Bronx
Museum’s Teen Council invited New York City artists ages 15-19 to enter up to three pieces of artwork centered on the theme “DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES” and juried an exhibition from amongst the submissions. As part of a yearlong exchange with a group of young artists at Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo, a museum in Madrid, the Teen Council also extended the invitation to submit art related to the theme to the Madrid based teens and young adults. The artists group from Madrid made a collaborative piece for the exhibition; and Alvaro Talavera de Molina made a solo work for the show as well.
Alongside the teen artwork, this exhibition includes two prints from the Bronx Museum’s permanent collection by Marcelo Grassmann. The Teen Council took advantage of their affiliation with the Bronx Museum to create a unique opportunity for teens to have their work shown in dialogue with artwork by an established artist. 
Participating Artists: Alvaro Talavera de Molina, Amber Logan-Garrett, Ana Isabel López Moreno, Auréole Ribes, Beatriz Arce Adrados, Celines Flores, Cristina Zarzalejos Aznarte, Daniel Outón Benitez, David Yearwood, Donna Tran, Dyreek Brathwaite, Estela Molina, Jade Peirce, Jaleah Millington, Juan Diego Ntue Navarro, Juan Ilarazza, Laura Luengo Iglesias, Marcelo Grassmann, Marina Gutiérrez Hernández, Salief Lewis, Stephanie Balbuena, and Tiffany Tsai
This exhibition will be on view from June 5th - 9th 2014 2014,
Opening reception June 5th   6:30-8:30pm
Bronx Museum of the Arts, 1040 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY

Created in 2005, the Bronx Museum Teen Council makes contemporary art and culture accessible to urban youth through a series of different platforms. Structured around the production of MuseCasts, video productions available on YouTube and MuseZines, a small publication, Teen Council is comprised of a group of high school students working closely with two instructors in the Museum’s Media Lab. Scheduled concurrently with the school year, this 8-month program provides teens with an open forum for the expression of ideas and dialogue on issues affecting young people, and the promotion of the Bronx as an important cultural, political and artistic force.
Teen Council is made possible with support from Best Buy Children’s Foundation, The David Rockefeller Fund, JPMorgan Chase, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, New York Yankees Foundation, Pierre and Maria Gaetana, Matisse Foundation, The Pinkerton Foundation, and Anonymous.
