Revisiting the École de la Montagne Rouge

Copy of ecoledelamontagnerouge 002.jpgBack in April, at the height of the student protest movement, we visited the École de la Montagne Rouge.

That was a group formed by UQAM graphic design students during the strike.

They produced posters, t-shirts, and banners that were used during the protests.

Students at the École de la Montagne Rouge were also the ones who started distributing those little red squares that were soon seen pinned to the jackets and bags of thousands of people across the province.

Now, the students are back in class, and much of the work produced during that heady time will soon be exhibited at UQAM Design Centre gallery.

The exhibition is called Création en temps de crise sociale (Creation in a Time of Social Upheaval). It will run from November 22 to December 9, 2012.

To see a preview of some of the work that will be in the exhibition, visit the gallery on our Facebook page.

Listen to an interview with the curator of the exhibition, Frédéric Metz.
