You’re invited to the monthly Media Seminar at McLuhan House!
The year was 1968. New ideas about art and media were being transformed into mass confrontations and demonstrations on the streets of France. Join McLuhan House literati Stuart Mackay and Marco Adria as they discuss the rise of the poster as a call to action, the rapid creation of new hybrid artistic forms, and the end of what Marshall McLuhan called “polite society.”

The talk will include an overview of some of the recent projects underway at the Studio.
