Celebrated artist Eric Drooker visited Montreal for the seventeenth edition of Artists Against Apartheid at La Sala Rossa, 15/10/2011.

Artists Against Apartheid concert series continues to feature inspiring artists from Montreal and all around the world, building cultural solidarity with the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions BDS movement against the Israeli apartheid and in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for freedom.

Our recent concert took place in collaboration with the Mile End Poets Festival in Montreal, featuring a performance by Brahja Waldman’s Quartet as well as musical selections via DJ Andy Williams.

On a beautiful fall evening La Sala Rossa was packed as artist Eric Drooker transfixed the assembled crowd, projecting images that have illustrated street posters for social movements all around the world over the past decades. Over the past months Drooker’s posters have emerged as central imagery to the Occupy Wall Street movement and inspired actions all around the world. On the poetic front Drooker animated and collaborated with celebrated poem Allan Ginsberg, sharing stories with the Montreal audience on the collaboration toward Ginsberg last book Illuminated Poems.
