Contemporary Arts Museum Houston’s (CAMH) Teen Council is pleased to present Turn On, Tune In, Tap Out, a group exhibition featuring work by over thirty Houston-area teen artists including painting, sculpture, video, and photography. Like the rest of the world, these Teen Council members faced the rapid shift to quarantine in the middle of the school year. During a global pandemic and widespread uncertainty the Teen Council has continued to meet, plan, and connect—all in a virtual space. In seeking artwork to include in this exhibition they posed the questions: How do you define “The Screen”? How does “The Screen” protect you or hold you back? How can you crack “The Screen”? The works chosen respond to these questions with both hope and despair. Artists in the exhibition have found their voice and power behind the screen, while others feel muted and a loss of control. Turn On, Tune In, Tap Out focuses on the relationship between our bodies and “The Screen” with largely three-dimensional works in a time when many are craving physicality, touch, and in-person experiences while directly responding to this cultural, social, and political moment.
