Adrian Blackwell had a solo exhibition at the Art Gallery at Laval University called Inverted Barricadefrom November 9-December 18, 2016. The exhibition interrogated the barricade as the only truly popular form of architecture through three works: a video showing students building the barricades of Occupy Central in Hong Kong in 2014, a broadsheet called “Inverser la barricade”, and a sculptural cast of a barricade turning inside out.
