This event is sold out.
Internationally acclaimed artist Rirkrit Tiravanija (AIR ’15), known for his groundbreaking contributions in the realm of social practice, will orchestrate a shared meal with a mixed menu based on what is fresh and locally available. As we eat together, Tiravanija will talk about various processes and projects that blur the line between artist and viewer, and ask how an artwork might leave a lasting impression when its medium is something as finite as food. Setting the table in Headlands’ historic Mess Hall—renovated by artist Ann Hamilton—this gathering invites visitors to engage with art in an exceptionally sociable way.
This event is co-presented with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in conjunction with Tiravanija’s recently curated exhibition The Way Things Go. On view at YBCA February 13–May 24, 2015.
