Exhibition:
"alt.youth.media"
Date
September 6 - November 5 1996
Description

"Combining artistic and educational practices and elements drawn from pop culture, these works reveal youth perspectives today on topics such as community, love, sexuality, gangs, family, school environment, racism, and violence. By integrating the disparate aesthetic and cultural perceptions adolescents and young adults thrive on, alt.youth.media aims to move beyond narrow representations of youth prevalent in mainstream media and society. The Educational Video Center and team of youth advisors with organize a selection of video projects for the exhibition. Presentations and workshops involving media artists and youth producers will take place in the galleries throughout the exhibition providing a critical forum for engaging with a range of audiences about attitudes concerning youth."
