The work of Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija (born 1961 in Buenos Aires, lives and works in Berlin, New York and Bangkok), pioneer of the the Relational Aesthetics movement, has not stopped questioning the format of artworks and the exhibition system. A mix of performance, sculpture, installation, and more, with Tiravanija, the artistic space transforms into a place of social interaction, often dotted with meeting points, encounters, and exchanges. Frequently immaterial, his work invents new connections in a world based on reciprocity, conviviality, and hospitality. Whether transforming art centers and galleries into banquets, printing workshops, or pirate radio stations, the artist enjoys overcoming the usual spatial and temporal limitations of the "white cube."
