Some people got to have it. Some people really need it. Some people do things—good and bad—with it… We’re talking about money, money, money, MONEY!

No Longer Empty, High 5 and Museum Teen Summit invites you to enjoy a private viewing of the new No Longer Empty exhibition, “How Much Do I Owe You?” with light refreshments, art activities, a photo booth and much more! Explore this was once an abandoned bank, transformed into an art space.

This event is FREE for students aged 14–19 with a school or government-issued ID. RSVP here by e-mailing


As the title implies, “How Much Do I Owe You?” is a personal and conversational exploration into the new iterations of currency, value and exchange at this time of financial flux, growing debt and job insecurity.

From the virtualization of money to the rise of non-monetary barter networks, recent years have seen a re-thinking of forms and systems of exchange, and thus notions of value, commodity, and debt that surround them.

Inspired by the Bank building and the surrounding neighborhood, 26 artists from 15 countries confront these issues and how they are negotiated in the workforce, housing market, and in the every day. Curated by Chief Curator, Manon Slome, the public will experience a variety of media, from sound installations, projections, and film to participatory projects, immersive installations and large scale sculptures.  


This fall, teens in Teens Curate Teens, a special edition of the Teen Reviewers and Critics Program, curated a show within the NLE exhibition of teen artwork called Specie. This exhibition features 21 works by student artists reflecting on themes of currency, value and exchange.
