    Watch now: an exclusive documentary on AA Bronson, General Idea, and VideoVirus from CIRCA

    Launching World AIDS Day, 1 Dec 2021, CIRCA presents VideoVirus, a powerful new film by AA Bronson and General Idea. Reimagining their historic Imagevirus for a global audience, the artwork comes to life in a hypnotic video animation that virally transmits their activist message across billboards in London, Milan, New York, Seoul & Tokyo. 

    Throughout December, CIRCA is proud to partner with UNAIDS and Terrence Higgins Trust to mark 40 years since the disease was first recorded in 1981. A new work by AA Bronson, the sole surviving member of the General Idea art group, draws inspiration from the viral intentions of Imagevirus, which in the mid-1980s spread consciousness of the epidemic by reappropriating Robert Indiana's famous LOVE logo, virally transmitting the AIDS symbol through cities in the form of paintings, sculptures, videos, posters, and exhibitions.

    A Public Apology to Siksika Nation, AA Bronson's project for the first Toronto Biennial of Art, originates in family stories about his great-grandfather, the first missionary to the Siksika (Blackfoot) Nation, stories that do not agree with recorded (white) history. Many years of research have resulted in a book, a performance and an installation that together explore the generational trauma that has resulted from the colonization of the Canadian Prairies. Adrian Stimson is the great-grandson of Old Sun, the famous chief of the same period; he responds to AA Bronson's Apology with an installation and sculptures, generated in close dialogue with residential school survivors and leaders, to reveal the layers of colonization and Indigenous resistance in his community.
