The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's Teen Council is pleased to present Origins of the Self, a group exhibition featuring work by Houston-area teen artists. The exhibition will focus on questions of personal identity. This is the 10th biennial youth art exhibition organized by CAMH's Teen Council.

Every other year, CAMH's Teen Council organizes a Perspectives exhibition in the Zilkha Gallery featuring new work by young, Houston-area artists. The Teen Council selects the theme and title of the exhibition while partnering with CAMH staff to develop exhibition design, a printed catalogue, and public programming. Drawing from an open call, the Teen Council will select work that effectively responds to the questions: What is the real you? Where is the real you? How do you define the real you in a constantly evolving landscape? The deadline for submissions was November 2, 2016.

About the Exhibition

About CAMH’s Teen Council
The Teen Council is a group of dedicated high-school students who are employed by the museum to create programming for their peers. Council members participate in a two year-long program where they receive in-depth, behind-the-scenes museum experience; learn about pathways to creative careers; and develop leadership, collaboration, and critical thinking skills while gaining real-world experience planning exhibitions and events in a museum setting. Applications to CAMH’s Teen Council are available online Spring 2017.
