Bad boys v sex dolls – the week in art

Exhibition of the week: IAIN BAXTER/Adam Chodzko

This exhibition juxtaposes two masters of provocation. Iain Baxter – he added the to his name in 2005 – is one of the founders of conceptual art. In 1966 he and Ingrid Baxter created the NE Thing Co., a totally free and undefined art enterprise that was registered as a real company under Canadian law. The NE Thing Co. was a pioneer of the socialisation and deconstruction of art in the late 1960s. Baxter’s subversive wit meets its match in Adam Chodzko, who has been teasing at the edges of contemporary British art for two dangerous decades.
Raven Row, London E1 from 11 July until 11 August
