“Art, especially the art found in museums, is often considered inaccessible to people without diplomas and degrees, uninterpretable by people who have not spent time in the ivory tower of the university system. Accession makes an effort not just to experience visual art in a different context, but to make it accessible by always choosing new ways to explore it, ways that click together with the greater context surrounding the art piece.”

-Elena Fernández-Collins

“Each episode of Accession discusses a piece of art, going into depth about how it’s displayed, what it looks like, and what it could represent. The sound design of each episode makes it feel like a storybook, and the writing never assumes that you are, or should be, educated in art or art history to enjoy the piece it’s discussing.”

-Wil Williams
