The second annual Teen Convening, Art & Identity: Making Art to Belong, Making Art to Distinguish Oneself, took inspiration from an exhibition at the ICA featuring the work of Dr. Lakra. Like the work of Lakra, which utilizes symbols and imagery that can represent the tension between individuality and group affiliation, teens similarly struggle between these two poles as they work to form their own identity.
