"High school's full of phonies; all you do is study so that you can learn enough to be smart enough to be able to buy a goddam Cadillac some day, and you have to keep making believe you give a damn if the football team loses...." - J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye.

In every era, teenagers push the boundaries of accepted behavior. They thrive despite raging hormones, clueless parents, ridiculous authority figures, and the dawning recognition that the entire status quo is absurd. They will define the future of new media.

Curated from 60 international submissions, this group show coincides with ZER01's 01SJ Biennial, Build Your Own World, highlighting art at the intersection of technology and culture. Teen Age: You Just Don't Understand considers the role of new media in newly emerging worldviews. Each project is a collaboration involving at least one teen and one so-called adult.
"Here we are now, entertain us". - Nirvana

Artists include:

Sam Wheeler (16) and Whitney Lynn; Virginia, USA
Allison Reilly (17) and Miguel Farias; San Anselmo, CA (USA)

“High school's full of phonies, and all you do is study so that you can learn enough to be smart enough to be able to buy a goddam Cadillac some day, and you have to keep making believe you give a damn if the football team loses.” -J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye.

Teenagers push the boundaries of accepted behavior in every era. They thrive despite raging hormones, clueless parents, ridiculous authority figures, and the dawning recognition that the entire status quo is absurd. They will define the future of new media.

Teen Age: You Just Don’t Understand is the working title for an exhibition that aims to illuminate and challenge the shifting roles of new media in contemporary life, from Facebook to Flickr to texting to Twitter. We seek to encourage collaboration between teens and more experienced artists. Submitted artwork can address any contemporary issues at the intersection of art, technology, and culture and can be in any format or medium (electronic, painting, photography, sculpture, etc.), but must be submitted by collaborative teams that includes at least one person under 18 and one person over 21.

Accepted works will be exhibited at Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco to coincide with the 2010 01SJ Biennial: "Build Your Own World": http://zero1.org/01sj/2010-biennial
