TAG Yourself brings together pieces by over 30 young artists from different backgrounds. The phrase “tag yourself,” popularized by internet culture, signifies the unique way teenagers deal with labels. Particularly for our generation, we praise differences. Yet, we often struggle to express these identities and to connect with larger communities. The pieces featured in the show grapple with this contradiction; how you may view yourself, and how the surrounding world does.
Featuring works by Juan C. Pereanez-Bermeo, Gabrielle Broome, Chloe Hiu See Tsang, Julie Sharpe, Rivers Liu, Spencer Julien, Sally Pfeiffer, Noa Lin, Christina Oyawale, Andrew Noorily, Isabella Abate, William Gary, Valerie Wu, Cynthia Zhou, Audrey Ji, Athena Chu, Juliet Di Carlo, Becca Daniels, Tova Kleiner, Abby Phillips, Chloe Tsang, Isabella Vella, Sebrina Gao, Taylor Bluestine, Olivia Kerr, Rachel Lee, Felipe Urrutia, Claire Yoo, Surya Gowda, and Kas Yu.
Teen Art Gallery (T.A.G.) was founded in 2011 and promotes the work of artists under 20. Run by a group of high school students, T.A.G. is committed to creating opportunities for young people to share their art in a professional setting. By connecting artists to a wider audience, T.A.G. provides visibility and recognition to work that would otherwise remain unseen.
