About The Poster:  

Not quite Keith Haring, but there is something particularly eye-catching in the use of black and white figures in this over-sized poster. The politics of the province of Quebec have always provided inspiration for its homegrown poets, musicians, playwrights, and composers. In the 1970s and 80s (and 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.
