Created, implemented, and hosted by ICA teens, the Current is an ongoing series of gatherings for youth dialogue and engagement around social issues through the arts. The spring installment will take its cue from Art in the Age of the Internet, 1989 to Today, with Boston teen artists presenting original artwork ranging from drawing to film to poetry based on the theme of living in a digital world.
