EAI will partner with Migrating Forms festival to present two programs by artist collective General Idea (1969-1994).

General Idea (AA Bronson, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal) forged a unique conceptual practice that deployed parody and irony to critique the artworld and popular media culture. In performances, installations, video, photography, prints, and editions, they explored social phenomena ranging from the production, distribution and consumption of mass media images to gay identity and the AIDS crisis.

Now in its eighth annual edition, Migrating Forms spotlights a range of moving-image work from international festivals, museums, biennials, and microcinemas in the common context of the cinema.
