Colour & Controversy with Paul Yore.

This exhibition of Paul's, held at the Linden CCA in St Kilda, as part of a group show titled"Like Mike Now What", certainly pulled the local art worlds attention and that of the wider community.  Some politically motivated conservatives seized the opportunity to play the "Kiddie porn" card and caused the  exhibition to be closed down temporarily.  OK. It may have been a little crass, confronting and garish, but the gallery had warned of the explicit nature of the installation and shouldn't art push a few risks?
