About The Poster: The politics of the province of Quebec have always provided inspiration for its homegrown poets, musicians, playwrights, and composers. Starting in the 1970s and continuing through today, there was a great uprising of nationalist sentiment amongst the French population of the province who felt that they had been treated as second-class citizens for too long. This social and political malaise was very evident in the outpouring of music and performance pieces - and posters of same - during that period.
