The irresistible charm of youth through the exhibition “Eternal Youth”

THE Youth culture is the focus of the impressive exhibition currently being presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. It’s about her “Eternal Youth”, It examines how artists capture the portrait of youth in contemporary art. The focus of the exhibition is Larry Clark’s mysterious photo series “Children”, which was created during the filming of the 1995 scandal film of the same name and is framed by works by artists whose names are synonymous with youth culture, such as Tillmans, Francesca Woodman, Eddie Peake, Dawoud Bey, Mona Hatoum and Jack Pierson. The exhibition is divided into five thematic sections covering topics such as sex and the AIDS pandemic, explorations of sexuality and the young body, and how advertisers use youth to trick consumers. Further information can be found on the Museum’s websitesee. –Marousa Thomas
