Taking Art Back

PRESENTED ON JUN 06, 2014
IN MARKHAM @ VOL 3

Yinka! focuses on inherent inaccessibility of art to the common man and how this trend is changing. Despite advancements in and best efforts of society, governments, educators, etc., there is still a widely held perception that special knowledge is required to enjoy art and that it is something reserved for the rich and privileged. But change is a-coming!
