Interview with Artists in Rirkrit Tiravanija: (who’s afraid of red, yellow, and green)

Watch Now


The murals featured in Rirkrit Tiravanija: (who’s afraid of red, yellow, and green) command attention. Fascinating and ever-changing, these arresting depictions of protest scenes from Chicago; Washington, D.C.; and Bangkok, Thailand on the gallery walls are conduits to contemplation. They’re brought to life by nine talented artists who each bring their own style and determination to their drawings. Wrightwood 659 hired these practicing artists to work with Tiravanija, who in turn provided them with a library of more than 300 images to choose from. Each artist is empowered to select the images they find most compelling, and to determine the ideal locations for their drawings. Working four-hour shifts at a time, the artists create illustrations that our guests can admire and ponder alongside a bowl of tasty curry, and some potent conversation.

We’d like to thank artists Taylor Allmon, Mack Baker, Anko Chang, Abraham Cone, Aya Nakamura, Giovanna Pizzoferrato, Rin Scholtens, Jan Simonds and Jiaming You for their talent and commitment to this fascinating exhibition.
