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.
