Defying media-based description, Rirkrit Tiravanija is widely recognized as one of the most influential artists of his generation. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and identifying as a Thai artist, Tiravanija teaches at Columbia University. His practice combines traditional object making, public and private performances, teaching, and other forms of public service and social action. Winner of the 2004 Hugo Boss Prize awarded by the Guggenheim Museum, his exhibition there consisted of a pirate radio (with instructions on how to make one for yourself). Tiravanija was also awarded the Benesse by the Naoshima Contemporary Art Museum in Japan and the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Lucelia Artist Award.

The sharing session and performance will last for approximately 90 minutes.
