press: Arco Madrid, art fair highlights

Rirkrit Tiravanija at Galerie Chantal Crousel for Arco Madrid 2021.


Rirkrit Tiravanija's work resides in major museums around the world.

His famous text pieces are among the most collectible of his oeuvre, which also spans installation, video, and performance.

Here, the phrase 'Once Upon A Time' is laid over an image of a 1961 U.S. map that has been woven into an Aubusson rug. Despite often containing political undertones, Tiravanija's deliberately ambiguous slogans encourage the viewer to make their own interpretations.
