“General Idea...created its own unique mythology. Its conceptual art continuum used the art world to infiltrate life.”
—Canadian Art

Co-presented by Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI)

From 1969 to 1994, the artist collective General Idea—comprising members AA Bronson, Felix Partz, and Jorge Zontal—forged a unique conceptual practice deploying parody and irony as critique. This program includes Blocking and Cornucopia, two video works documenting rehearsals and archaeological findings from the collective’s Miss General Idea Pavillion project; Shut the Fuck Up, an examination of the relationship between mass media and the artist; and Double Mirror Video, an early conceptual experiment using mirrors to create an optical feedback loop.
