GENERAL IDEA "PHOENIX WITH A P" SILKSCREEN, 1986
General Idea formed in 1967 in Toronto. During the following 25+ years GI made a remarkable contribution to post-modern art.
Their body of work combines provocative or banal imagery with wit and irony, creating subversive cultural critiques on a wide range of topics including the role of the artist in society to the AIDS crisis.
Two of the members, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal died of AIDS in 1994.
GI's surviving member, AA Bronson, continues to practice as an independent artist and oversees the representation and exhibition of General Idea’s work internationally.
Their numerous crests are one of the most iconic and clever creations in their oeuvre blending historical fantasy and invented patrimony.
