Artist Rirkrit Tiravanija Uncovers Some Astonishing Things About the Politics of Vermont Hippies

Untitled (Demonstration No. 19) (2008).

For his new exhibition at the Drawing Center, Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija has commissioned a series of more than 200 works on paper based on photographs of demonstrations published in the International Herald Tribune over the past six years. Together they provide a vision of protest as happening, from hippies marching with homemade banners to less peaceful characters wielding projectiles. On view until November 6.
