This publication is the definitive work on the editions of the internationally renowned artists’ collective General Idea. It was produced in conjunction with a major retrospective exhibition by the same title, curated by then Director/Curator of the Blackwood Gallery Barbara Fischer. The work is comprised of four sections: critical texts by the curator, Barbara Fischer, and the last remaining member of General Idea, AA Bronson; a catalogue raisonné of editions, ephemera, and film and video works, compiled by Fern Bayer; a commentaries section containing nine essays by other writers and artists (Jean Christophe Ammann, Lionel Bovier, Cathy Busby, Christophe Cherix, Joshua Decter, Diedrich Diedrichsen, John Miller, Philip Monk, and Stephan Trescher), as well as an interview with AA Bronson by Mike Kelley; and, a complete exhibition history and bibliography for General Idea up to 2002. The work contains over 200 colour and black-and-white images.

General Idea: Editions 1967-1995 was published by the Blackwood Gallery in collaboration with the Agnes Etherington Art Centre (Kingston), Mount St. Vincent University Art Gallery (Halifax), Art Gallery of Hamilton, Museum London, Plug In ICA (Winnipeg), Dunlop Art Gallery (Regina), Illingworth Kerr Gallery (Calgary), Charles H.
