17h – 18h
Talk with Rirkrit Tiravanija and Hans Ulrich Obrist
In 2018, Rirkrit Tiravanija staged the Fondation Beyeler’s famed Summer Night's Gala. On the occasion of Art Basel, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, will converse with the artist about his work.
Born in Buenos Aires in 1961, Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija is widely considered one of the most influential artists of his generation. His work eludes media-based categorisations, as his practice merges the traditional production of objects, public and private performances, teaching, as well as other forms of public service and social action. He lives and works in Chiang Mai, Berlin and New York.
The conversation will take place in English.
The event is included in the museum admission price.
