MCA Denver invests in exhibitions and programs that challenge conventional thinking around what makes a museum a museum. This dialog between the museum and its audience is baked into the mission of the organization, making up the very DNA of programming and exhibitions. Like MCA Denver, teenagers are an audience whose development hinges on challenge and risk. Teens are trying on their own identities, discovering their place in the world, and pushing the boundaries of what they know and what they want to discover. Check out these images from recent teen events; Hazard & Order exhibition, and the Teen Anti-Hero Short Film Festival.
