On October 2nd, David Lyle will be opening a new show at 111 Minna in San Francisco featuring a series of works collectively entitled Damaged Goods. The New York-based artist takes inspiration from found vintage photos which he recreates with a twist, seeding each image with unexpected modern day references. He further states – “These paintings are American moments for our psyches to reflect upon and yet they are personal satirical commentaries of events going on in and around my life.” Discuss David Lye here.
Last week in Hong Kong, Daniel Arsham opened a new solo show entitled Fictional Archeology at Galerie Perrotin.

Rounding out the show was a smaller version the installation seen last year in Miami (covered), a “future archaeological dig site” of modern day items like shoes, cameras, musical instruments, and phones made from chalk.
