Loco, 1982

General Idea
Canadian, 1946
videotape, 8:00 minutes on 3/4" cassette
Purchased 1993
National Gallery of Canada (no. 37097)

Fancifully assuming the identities of poodles, the three artists of General Idea review film clips of Miss General Idea 1968 - their very own artistic muse, model and alter ego -- in quest of what they call their "lunatic inspiration." This videotape is a classic example of General Idea's always pithy parodies of social mores, cultural values, and the art industry.
