N.E. Thing Co.: Companies Act (Volume 1)

Introduction by Jean-Christophe Ammann, Iain Baxter. Foreword by Ryan Smith.

A long-scarce compendium of the art and ideas of the Canadian conceptualist collective N.E. Thing Co., now in a facsimile edition

Described by cofounder Iain Baxter as a “compendium of company ideas,” Companies Act is perhaps the most crucial bookwork by the seminal, Vancouver-based conceptual art group, N.E. Thing Co.

Assembled by Jean-Christophe Ammann of Kunsthalle Basel, it comprised a near-complete visual archive of the unparalleled creative practice of Iain and Ingrid Baxter as the N.E. Thing Company.

N.E. Thing Co. was a Vancouver-based conceptual art group run by copresidents Iain and Ingrid Baxter. The “company” acted as a vehicle that interrogated art, domestic systems, corporate strategies and everyday life through the use of photography, information technology and installation-based works.

Due to N.E. Thing Co.’s small runs, this work is particularly scarce. Originally published in an edition of 500, this facsimile second edition makes Companies Act accessible for the first time in over 40 years.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Brooklyn Rail

Jennie Waldow

A fascinating hybrid that succeeds as an informational compendium, a “reinterpreted facsimile,” and an artistic project in its own right.
