Child’s Play: Representations in Adolescence
Portland Museum of Art
Child's Play: Representations of Adolescence will take a close look at childhood and the unsteady terrain of adolescence through a selection of 20th-century photographs. This exhibition reveals artists' awareness that the early years of life are marked by transition and transformation, and the meaning and experience of youth is hardly fixed. Representations of adolescence evoke many phases and moments including self-discovery, growth, nostalgia, playfulness, and sexual awakening. This exhibition explores the complexities of youth from multiple perspectives.

I was really impressed by the museum as a whole but didn’t enjoy this specific exhibit. I neither really understood its purpose nor liked the photos displayed.
