At YBCA, art is not a spectator sport. It’s not about sound bites and who can shout loudest and who wins and who loses. It’s not about voracious consumption, bling, status or prestige. It’s not about possession and greed, fear and loathing or anger and violence as a means to an end. It is instead about that most important human quality – the ability, through creative expression, to passionately engage with each other and with the world around us. It’s about the rare opportunity to be provoked in a smart way and walk away with more questions than answers. It’s about rethinking your assumptions and questioning your presumptions. It’s about long, sustained conversations and wondrous aesthetic experiences that are increasingly rare in the contemporary world. It’s about art that matters in really profound ways in a world in which nothing of consequence seems to matter any longer. It’s about connecting with each other and creating a richly textured, deeply meaningful life.
