 We Protest!

Description

Rowdy, impassioned mobs have frequently and conspicuously occupied roads, parks and open spaces in central Melbourne, demonstrating their concerns around all manner of political and social issues.

We Protest! presents an overview of this rude history. Protesters opposing the introduction of military conscription, annual May Day marches celebrating workers' rights, demonstrations for Aboriginal rights – peaceniks, dairy farmers, taxi drivers, loggers, vegans, Sikhs and gay liberationists all make an appearance in this exhibition curated by Malcolm McKinnon.

Over the past 20 years his work has encompassed documentary filmmaking, oral history, urban planning, public and community art projects, critical writing and exhibitions. Much of his work is produced with and for rural and regional communities.
