THE LAND FOUNDATION
In 1998, Tiravanija and fellow Chiang Mai-based artist Kamin Lertchaiprasert initiated The Land. The Land is an experimental art and community project that offers an open space for social engagement, alternative education, and self-sustainable development. It engages artists and collaborators from different disciplines and interests through projects such as a house-building project, rice cultivation, and alternative-energy experiments.
The Land Foundation was founded in 2004 to look after the The Land itself and to establish a platform for engagement and experimentation, it welcomes local and international communities interested in being part of a space where land is cultivated, art is created and dialogues are commenced.
