General Idea
>Miss General Idea Pageant (1975)
The 1975 Miss General Idea Pageant performance at the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto) was framed in turn as a television spectacular and released on video as the 53-minute Going Thru the Motions. In 1976, ongoing planning for the Pavillion project's construction led to Interview with Foreman Lamanna, their art dealer at the time. The interview took place standing at a jigsaw-patterned "hoarding" with three cut-out, construction site peepholes.
