When It's Good to Be Unruly

This large-format composite banner is an oppositional cultural artefact inspired by the province's 2012 “printemps québécois” protest movement. It is assembled from imagery produced during the more than six-month period of dissent. As a (re)mediated cultural artefact of mass oppositional performance, its purpose is to nourish the debriefing period.


David Widgington recently completed an MA Media Studies at Concordia University. He has had 3 protest banner exhibits over the past year and co-edited À force d'imagination: affiches & artéfacts du mouvement étudiant au Québec 1958-2013. He is creating an interactive web archive of artefacts from Québec's historic 2012 protest movement.
