Christopher Kelly Modern Cinema - Monthly Series
May 15, 2014

Our Modern Cinema series concludes with the perfect antidote to summer blockbuster season – a wise and sophisticated romantic-comedy for grown-ups. Clive Owen stars as a once-promising poet now teaching literature at a prep school, whose life is upended when a fiercely unsentimental abstract painter (Juliette Binoche) joins the faculty.

Conceptual artist Rirkrit Tiravanija (pronounced Rick-rit Tee-rah-vah-nit), born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, grew up living between Thailand, Ethiopia, and Canada as the son of a Thai diplomat. His grandmother played an important role in his life. She taught cooking on Thai television and owned a restaurant in Bangkok, where Tiravanija spent time as a youth. This background influenced the artist’s work, which often involves cooking in art-related places, such as museums and galleries.
