Project was very proud to present the first Irish exhibition of the seminal Canadian artist's group General Idea (1968 - 1995) in January 2006. Established by AA Bronson, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal, for almost thirty years this group worked with wit, theoretical sophistication and formal flair to critique and challenge the norms of both high and low culture - earning them a place within the cannon of the late 20th Century avant-garde.Read More
