Rirkrit Tiravanija Beach Towel
This Rirkrit Tiravanija beach towel is part of Art Production Fund’s WOW (Works on Whatever). A unique collection of everyday items designed by artists. APF invites artists to experiment with the latest commercial materials and techniques to bring art off the walls and into homes as everyday objects. WOW introduces contemporary art to a larger community with revenues from sales supporting our non-profit mission. WOW works conceptually with APF’s program of expanding art audiences and helps fund public art!
