The work of Rirkrit Tiravanija has not stopped questioning the format of artworks and the exhibition system. His practice is a mix of performance, sculpture and installation that leads to the transformation of the art space into a place of social interaction often dotted with meeting points, encounters, and exchanges.
Recent projects and solo exhibitions include: Hirschhorn Smithsonian Museum, Washington DC, USA (2019); Chaos Omotesando, Tokyo, and Fondation Luma in Arles, France (2018); The NG Teng Fong Roof Garden Commision: Rirkrit Tiravanija, National Gallery, Singapor (2018); untitled 2017 (fear eats the soul) (white flag), Creative Time, NY in collaboration with more than 20 American cultural institutions (2018); and All the worlds futures, La 56e Biennale di Venezia, Arsenale Artiglierie, Venice (2015).
