Spy Hop: Fifteen @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (SLC, Dec. 6- Jan. 4)

Salt Lake City, UT - Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) is pleased to present Fifteen, a Spy Hop video installation that explores the complicated nature of today’s path to adulthood.

In anticipation of Spy Hop’s 15th anniversary, this exhibition describes what it means to turn this pivotal age, a milestone of sorts that ushers in a new sphere of knowledge, experience, and possibility. Fifteen takes audiences inside the world of today’s youth culture from across the Salt Lake Valley. Organized by Spy Hop, this exhibition reveals discerning responses to major questions facing a generation of young and dynamic minds. What are teenagers afraid of? How do they differ from teens in other generations? What they have to say might surprise you.
