TAC: The Space Between Worlds

The Teen Art Council is a group of creative teens from across New Orleans who serve as youth ambassadors of the New Orleans Museum of Art. The TAC meets weekly throughout the school year to engage with artworks, museum staff, and artists; develop events and resources for teen audiences; and grow as creative thinkers and leaders in their communities.

During the Fall 2021 semester, TAC members dove deep into the retrospective exhibition of pioneering multimedia artist Dawn DeDeaux, The Space Between Words. From a field trip to the artist’s residence and compound to extended looking and conversation in the galleries, the teens were immersed in the artist’s visions of life on a devastated Earth and inspiring calls to viewers to chart another course forward.
