Rirkrit Tiravanija ( who's afraid of red, yellow, and green)
Opening Reception: Thursday August 5th, 2010
Exhibition Date: 5th - 29th August , 2010
Gallery’s opening Hours: Thursday – Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m

100 Tonson Gallery proudly presents the first solo show in the home country of the world re-known contemporary Thai artist, Rirkrit Tiravanija. Exhibition titled (who’s afraid of red, yellow, and green) is under the idea of learning how to live in the same society despite contradicting thoughts/ beliefs.

Rirkrit Tiravanija, undoubtedly the most visible landmark of today’s Thai contemporary artists in the world-stage, was born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, grown up in many countries and has taken Thailand’s northern province of Chiangmai as a base in the past several years. Since the early 1990s he has explored the social role of the artist and has fostered interactivity with his audience. He has cooked and served food to gallery-goers, set up a recording studio in a museum, reconstructed his apartment inside an exhibition space, corresponded via the internet while on an American road trip with Thai students, and provided opportunities for numerous other everyday activities to occur within art spaces.

During the exhibition, the artist will be cooking and offering his signature creation in the art space, to the viewers and audience and will at the same time orchestrate interactions between artist, art, and the audience in the combination of “Art and Daily life”. The gallery’s walls will be a platform for expressions of various (and can be contradicting) thoughts and beliefs through charred drawings and graffiti during this one month period.

The opening reception will be on Thursday August 5th, 2010 at 7 pm and the exhibitions and interactions are throughout the opening hours 11 am- 7 pm of every Thursday-Sunday of August until the last day of Sunday August 29th, 2010.
