We Protest

design Letterbox | curator Malcolm McKinnon | venue City Gallery, Melbourne

Rowdy, impassioned mobs have frequently and conspicuously occupied roads, parks and open spaces in central Melbourne, demonstrating on all manner of political and social issues. We Protest! presents the city as a democratic domain, open to any with a barrow to push, a placard to wave or a slogan to shout.

Using previous experience with the spontaneous production of protest banners, the exhibition lettering was made using gaffer tape, torn with teeth or bare hands.
