People / Ingrid Baxter

Artist. Ingrid Baxter was born in Spokane, Washington in 1938. With her then-husband Iain, Baxter co-founded the N.E. Thing Company Limited or NETCO in 1966. Officially incorporated in 1969, the prolific and influential NETCO humorously appropriated and subverted the corporate paradigm in a variety of projects that comment on art and art making and its socio-historical context. The first Canadian artists to be featured on the cover of Art in America (May-June 1969), NETCO dissolved in 1978. After the dissolution of NETCO, Baxter received a Master of Education from the University of British Columbia in 1981. At that time she relocated to Deep Cove and, shortly thereafter, founded Deep Cove Canoe & Kayak Centre, which she operates currently.
Additional information and materials about NETCO are available on request in Art, Architecture and Planning at the University of British Columbia Library. http://www.library.ubc.ca/finearts/
