    About The Work

    A key facet of General Idea was the discourse around LGBT identity during an era of critical change and awareness in America. Whether directly or metaphorically GI explored gender and sexuality in their typically subversive and playful approach.

    "Jockey Short Shopping Bag" is a paradigm of this characteristic from their oeuvre. It evokes some of the sculptures created by Claes Oldenburg during the heyday of the Pop / Fluxus era.
