Rirkrit Tiravanija

Rirkrit Tiravanija, born in Buenos Aires in 1961, is best known for his intimate, participatory installations that revolve around communal traditions. He has continually challenged the social dimension of art, inviting people from all walks of life to inhabit the special and personal spaces that he constructs. Through his real-time experiences, Tiravanija often addresses broader social and political concerns that go largely unaddressed in Western media.
