s1e5 Redefining the Canon

How can the visual arts sector redefine what makes the cut?

In series 1 episode 5, co-hosts Ann Shafer and Ben Levy talk about the Western art-historical canon and recent, important efforts to redefine it, to break it apart, to destroy it. How can/should museums embrace multiple voices and points of view? What happens to museum collections?
