= Rare original edition. The N.E. Thing Co. of the Canadian conceptual art duo Ingrid and Iain Baxter utilized an abstracted business model to interrogate art, domestic systems, corporate strategy and everyday life using photography, information technology and installation-based artworks. Described as a "compendium of company ideas," Companies Act is perhaps the most important art book by the "company". It contains 362 collage-like pages comprised of their most critical works, including hand-written descriptions providing great insight into the process and intent of the N.E. Thing Company. Companies Act was an artwork created for N.E. Thing Co.s contribution to Kunsthalle Basels 1978 "Younger Canadian Artists" exhibition. Kunsthalle curator, Jean-Christophe Ammann knew that N.E. Thing Co. would represent Canada; the question was how. With an oeuvre such as theirs, one artwork would not suffice, and he felt that a "telephone book" worth of work would be the best and only way to represent the ideas, projects and works of the N.E. Thing Co.
