Welcome future partner organizations! Teen Exhibitions Program has put together this page to facilitate the process of selecting organizations to partner with for us for future exhibitions! 

We are doing a call to Boston-based organizations that work with teens. Teen Exhibitions Program (TEP) runs a Teen Gallery! We want to work with a partner to exhibit teen artwork. The exhibition opening is January 27, 2023. The Exhibition will be open January 31, 2023- May 5, 2023. 


What is TEP?

We are a group of teens of various backgrounds from all over the greater Boston area. We come together every Friday to learn about planning, curating, organizing and installing art, here at the ICA Seaport Studio in the Teen Gallery. TEP focuses on highlighting the artistic voices of Boston teens in a gallery setting that is made for teens and created by teens.
