General Idea


General Idea was formed in 1967 in Toronto. Over the next 25 years, they made a remarkable contribution to post-modern art both in Canada and internationally.

Their body of work combines provocative or banal imagery with wit and irony, creating subversive cultural critiques on a wide range of topics from the role of the artist in society to the AIDS crisis. 

Their output alternated between cheeky and political and they supported an array of arts organizations and cultural groups.

This image was also used by the International Festival of Authors as both a poster for the event and as a (very) limited edition of twenty.

This boldly colored screenprint is a rare GI multiple as the edition number is uncharacteristically low.

It is also in mint condition having been vacum sealed and unframed for over thirty years.

Mint condition (vacuum sealed) screen print by artists General Idea (1993). Signed and numbered in pencil. Numbered 6 of 20. Includes International Festival of Authors poster.
