In 2011, popular uprisings erupted across the globe, including the Arab Spring protests, the England riots, and Occupy movements in different regions of the world. The upheaval of that year is explored by Stan Douglas in four large-scale photographs that restage events in London, New York City, Tunis, and Vancouver, together with a two-channel video installation whose premise imagines a real-time collaboration between musicians in London and Cairo.
