Rirkri Tiravanija

This is going to be like the shortest post ever, so I apologize in advance- I have a shit ton of homework to do so just bare with me! Tiravanija is a really interesting artist, because he oddly believes that the purpose of art is NOT for its’ viewers to observe and reflect upon, but more so to actually become a part of it (For example, a dinner) His artwork, to me at least, seems more like a social experiment rather than a typical display of fine art- which is kinda weird to me, but very interesting. I always think it’s really cool to hear about how different artists’ perceptions of what art is or what it’s meant to do- and because Tiravanija’s point of view is pretty unique, reading about his was especially interesting.
