Be part of a collective of awesome teens, artists, and mentors, experiment with new ideas, connect your practice to our collection, and make lots of art! Teen Lab is a program for young creatives who are looking to learn through artistic passions, experience new art forms, and build community with each other and the museum. Teen Lab participants will take field trips to local galleries, art organizations, and colleges; go behind-the-scenes of the museum; and exhibit their work at the Art Institute in a public reception for family, friends, and museum staff.
Teen Lab meets after school during the week at the Art Institute.

1 hour 13 sec ago The Art Institute of Chicago COMING SOON—Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium
Explore the relentlessly innovative works of Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica, arguably the most influential Latin American artist of the post–World War II period.
Oiticica’s adventurous works on paper paved the way for increasingly immersive large-scale installations that inspired Tropicália, a powerful movement in all the arts and a political position against both the right’s conservatism and the left’s desire for a purely Brazilian art. Throughout his brief but energetic career, Oiticica seamlessly melded formal and social concerns in his art, seeking to be internationally relevant and, at the same time, specifically Brazilian.
