Event description

Description

Marie McMahon made a poster that depicted flames coming out of the windows and walls of St Mary's Cathedral and two people in the foreground having a great time. The slogan on the picture was "Keep Warm This Winter: Make Trouble". That poster was one of the fundamental inspirations for Sedition. St Mary's has a different connotation now, not just of patriachal power but also terrible acts. So much of the art of the 1970s from posters to music, fine art, the theatre commented on and was an insurrection against the ruling paradigm. And we have come a long way. But has that struggle been aided by the artists and does the struggle continue in the arts?
