Rirkrit Tiravanija

A LOT OF PEOPLE

A crowd of people line up in the shape of a question mark, forming an artwork by Rirkrit Tiravanija in the Zocalo square of Mexico City.

From the start of his practice, a critical material for Rirkrit Tiravanija (Thai, b. 1961) has been the presence of “a lot of people”—a purposefully broad and expansive term that stands as an open invitation to everyone and anyone, present and future. His largest exhibition to date, Rirkrit Tiravanija: A LOT OF PEOPLE traces four decades of the artist’s career and features over 100 works, from early experimentations with installation and film, to works on paper, photographs, ephemera, sculptures, and newly produced “plays” of key participatory pieces.

Rirkrit Tirvanija’s untitled 1990 (pad thai)

For his exhibition A LOT OF PEOPLE, Rirkrit Tiravanija (Thai, b. 1961) stages five interactive artworks as a series of plays. Untitled 1990 (pad thai) presents a 1990 work in which Tiravanija cooked and served pad thai at the opening of his solo exhibition in the project space of New York’s Paula Allen Gallery. Through untitled 1990 (pad thai) and other related works that the artist has termed “situations,” Tiravanija has become known for incorporating Thai culinary customs and ingredients into his work, as well as for challenging social codes and attitudes around the sanctity of the art object. “I have, more or less, used the kitchen and cooking as the base from which to conduct an assault on the cultural aesthetics of Western attitudes toward life and living,” he says. “In the communal act of cooking and eating together, I hope that it is possible to cross physical and imaginary boundaries.”
