Mark di Suvero and Rirkrit Tiravanija share a belief in art's potential for effecting social change. Peace Tower (2006), a reconception of the Artists' Tower for Peace that was first created in 1966, stands in the Whitney Museum's Sculpture Court and involves the work of over 150 artists. As critic Jeffrey Kastner has stated:
Both a pragmatic attempt to provide a platform for an increasingly widespread oppositional movement and a utopian gesture aimed at promoting unity among its diverse adherents, the Peace Tower proposes at least one intriguing answer to the question of how art has been, and might again be, made during a time of war.
Join us at the Peace Tower for an evening of music, readings, and performance.
