028. Elite vs Elitism

Most of the time, there is a huge gulf between those who are elite and those who are elitist. In this installment of 30 Below, Ryan and Garreth discuss two often misused terms and the way we can understand them within art and design practice. We usually feel that we know the difference, but it is easy to confuse one for the other. And while these two terms are not synonymous, they do have a very specific relationship to one another.

We all knew this day would come, so we might as well go ahead and call this episode Almost 30 Below.
