This October, visitors at the Ace Hotel are invited to investigate the lobby for a site specific scavenger hunt designed by Teen Art Salon. Hidden in plain sight, the nine objects installed intend to parallel how hotels function as familiar, yet uncanny surrogate homes for the modern traveller. Each piece and clue encourages a completionist’s journey, toying with perception and reception, both nudging and confusing the direction of the scavengers’ course. Playing with tropes of typically impersonal furniture and predictable layouts, the pieces instead rebel against beige, muse on the conventions of the new nomad, and ultimately reference their own transient existence.

Founded by Isabella Bustamante in 2015, Teen Art Salon is an New York City based arts platform that supports, develops, and promotes the creative pursuits of adolescents.

Teen Art Salon is dedicated to providing young artists from across the five boroughs the free instruction, space, and materials needed to establish and advance a self-directed studio art practice.

In an environment that models itself after the salons of history as a non-hierarchical and intimate setting for dynamic making and conversation, Teen Art Salon maintains a safe sharing space for collaboration and innovation.

Established as a learning laboratory that simulates the artists' studio workshop, adolescent artists are coached to take ideas and transpose them, be self-motivated, and build high levels of concentration and focus. Rather than only teaching technique, originality, aptitude for thinking conceptually, creative stamina, critical inquiry, artistic experimentation, and social inclusion are the skills nurtured in our program's methodology.

Teen Art Salon engages adolescents as cultural producers within and beyond their communities. By focusing on the early output of future practitioners, we are committed to cultivating the next generation of artists through producing and exhibiting formative work that will potentially inform a lifelong practice. http://www.teenartsalon.com/
