General Idea: Visionary Provocateurs

ACI releases e-book on General Idea

On May 19, the Art Canada Institute launched General Idea: Life & Work by Sarah E.K. Smith. Controversial and revolutionary, General Idea (1969–1994) created a platform for social change through the group’s inventive performances, installations, paintings, sculptures, and photography—and its legendary AIDS campaign. Author Sarah E.K. Smith reveals General Idea’s complex oeuvre with incredible detail, deconstructing each nuance and interpretation.

General Idea, One Year of AZT (Une année d’AZT), 1991, 1825 gélules en styrène moulé sous vide fixées au mur, 12,7 x 31,7 x 6,3 cm chacune, Musée des beaux-arts du Canada, Ottawa.
