Playing the role of the storyteller, artist Wong Tin Yan shares a story about learning. What is right, and what is wrong? Can we always find the answers in textbooks? Wong Tin Yan invites us to join him on a search for fresh and original perspectives.

Yes but Why? is part of the M+ Rover programme. M+ commissions local cultural practitioners to participate in each edition of the programme; the 2020/2021 participating artist is Wong Tin Yan. With interactive activities and guided exhibition tours specially designed for primary-school students, the programme encourages students and teachers to unleash their imaginations, explore the everyday in a new light, and discover fresh perspectives by learning together.
