General Idea formed in 1967 and over the next four decades made a tremendous contribution to postmodern art. 

Two of the members, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal, died of AIDS in 1994. 

The surviving member, AA Bronson, continues to practice as an independent artist and oversees the representation and exhibition of General Idea’s work internationally.

"Curious Icons" explores recurring imagery in the group's body of work, such as the stiletto shoe (a reference to the 1971 “Miss General Idea Pageant” or the money-bag. 

It is a stellar example of a work on paper from the late 1980's/early 90's when General Idea experimented with gentle yet provocative watercolors. 

Much of General Idea’s work sought to address and subvert a variety of cultural phenomena, ranging from the superficiality of beauty pageants to the cultural response of the AIDS epidemic.
