To celebrate its fortieth anniversary, the Canadian Cultural Centre invites an artist with an exceptional career, a trailblazer of new forms, a tireless inventor, an artist capable of changing even his name to adapt it to the spirit of his art. Iain Baxter, alias N.E. Thing Co., now alias IAIN BAXTER&, returns to the Canadian Cultural Centre for a new exhibition, Canadian Perspective, thirty years after his winter 1980–81 exhibition, which on the contrary was about Paris and mischievously entitled Reflets sur polaroid de grains de beauté parisiens (Reflected Paris Beauty Spots). The exhibition Canadian Perspective brings together about twenty-five works from Canadian and French collections, both public and private.
