Performance Online: Confused Depicts Sexual Behaviour in Popular Culture Formats

ARTCOM, 1984, p. 47

Author C.L. reviews the "three work" video art project Confused by Vancouver based artist Paul Wong.

Produced in collaboration with Gary Bourgeois, Gina Daniels, and Jeneatte Reinhardt, the work draws on aspects of the late 60's "sexual revolution" and the 70's "me generation" as the springboard to portray the stereotyped hetero- homo and ambisexual roles in society. The work was scheduled to be presented by Wong at the Vancouver Art Gallery in February of 1984, but was canceled two days prior to the show, sending shockwaves through art communities across Canada.
