On Hospitality 3/3 with Rirkrit Tiravanija, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Liam Gillick
With Rirkrit Tiravanija, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Liam Gillick
In May 2018, as part of LUMA Days #2, a forum of art and ideas, entitled Hospitality, Searching for Common Ground, we invited local and international experts, scientists, artists, thinkers, and activists to converge with the general public to share ideas and experiences around topical issues.
While hospitality is a fundamental value of any culture, this timeless and universal subject, often synonymous with harmony, seems to be gradually losing its strength, until recently it has taken on the opposite resonance. This second edition of the LUMA Days has questioned the notion of hospitality through several topical themes such as climate change, design, territorial resilience, heritage, culture, the foreigner and the identity.
For this occasion, LUMA Arles welcomed around a round table moderated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries, and the three artists Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Rirkrit Tiravanija. The three artists with different artistic backgrounds share their vision of hospitality and its place in their work.
