This exhibition offers the rare opportunity to eat or drink some works of art. You are invited to enter the saffron tent of Rirkrit Tiranvanija’s untitled 1992 (cure), where you will be offered a cup of tea and a place to talk and rest. Here, your participation in the ritual of sharing tea is what helps create the artwork.
