Recap: Art Rotterdam 2018

This past weekend, from the 8th until the 11th February, the 19th edition of Art Rotterdam took place in the historical Van Nelle factory in the industrial area of one of the Europe’s major port cities. Focused on presenting mainly young art, but also internationally recognized names (such as Daniel Arsham whose work is on the header image, seen on Ron Mandos booth), the fair attracted 26,500 art lovers and professionals, both domestic and international. As one of the biggest art events on the old continent, the […]

Releases: Daniel Arsham – “Sand Circle”

It looks like Daniel Arsham’s latest limited edition is set to release on November 26th at noon EST on his webshop. Entitled Sand Circle, the new art object will be produced in a run of 500 and continues the NY-based artist’s fascination with lunar imagery. Arsham further explains – “In the 1960’s, during the space race there were different devices developed and created to explore distant galaxies and planets. One was famously a device that utilized sand, water, and air to create landscapes. This piece taps into […]

Releases: Daniel Arsham x Adidas Originals Shoe

Over the weekend, Daniel Arsham teamed up with Adidas Originals to release a new shoe featuring his distinct aesthetic. The American artist’s version of their New York silhouette features an all white color, frayed edges, and the text “THE PAST IS PRESENT” along the side, which is only visible when placed underneath an ultraviolet light. For those familiar with Arsham’s work, these design cues fit in perfectly with his signature “future relic” vibe. The extremely limited sneaker retailed for $180 but probably will go for more at this […]

Previews: Daniel Arsham – “Crystal Toys” @ Galerie Perrotin (Seoul)

On May 25th, the Seoul branch of Galerie Perrotin will be opening a new solo show from Daniel Arsham entitled Crystal Toys. Continuing his unique practice of creating “future relics”, the American artist looks to be taking his work in a more whimsical direction for this exhibition, focusing his technique on childhood toys. Using different materials like ash, amethyst, selenite, and quartz, Arsham has as usual created sculptures of how he envisions modern day objects would look like if they were discovered many many years […]

Releases: Daniel Arsham – “Future Relic 07”

Today at 9 am EST, Daniel Arsham will be releasing Future Relic 07, a continuation of his series of limited edition sculptural works. The objects are created with repurposed material and are made to look like remains that future archeologists may discover from our time, hence the name. Often times, similar pieces have taken part in installations for his shows (i.e. Miami ’16) arranged like archaeological dig sites. Up for offer today is a walkman (seen above among the previous six releases), something that is already almost obsolete today. Head […]

Upcoming: Snarkitecture / Daniel Arsham – “The Beach” @ Sydney Festival

For this year’s Sydney Festival, Cofounders Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham from Snarkitechture will be bringing their The Beach installation (see last year) back at the The Cutaway at Bangaroo Reserve. The 60m x 23m ball pit may be the world’s largest and will feature 1.1 million balls this time, an ocean of monochromatic fun for visitors to dive into. Head over here for more information.

Previews: Daniel Arsham – “Circa 2345” @ Galerie Perrotin (New York)

Tomorrow night (September 15th) in New York, Daniel Arsham will be opening a show at Galerie Perrotin entitled Circa 2345. The exhibition will be the locally-based artist’s 11th solo with the gallery, but his first in their NYC branch. As the title suggests, he will be continuing his signature brand of “fictional archeology” where current day objects are created in the way that future generations would see them when they unearth them. In this new body of work, Arsham has added colors to his normal black & white […]

Album Covers: Daniel Arsham x Usher – “No Limit” & “Crash”

On the cover of two new singles from Usher is artwork that fans might recognize if they are familiar with the work of Daniel Arsham. Featuring two views of a sculpture created in the signature future archaeological style of the Brooklyn-based sculptor, No Limit & Crash are both great examples of collaborations between music artists and fine artists. Usher apparently spent four hours sitting still while Arsham put him through the process of creating something that might be discovered in the the distant future, like the ruins […]

Basel Week Switzerland ’16 / Upcoming: Daniel Arsham

For Art Basel in Switzerland coming up in June, Daniel Arsham will be presenting his signature “fictional archeology” to fans and collectors in Basel with a twist. While mainly working in black and white in the past due in part to his colorblindness, the Brooklyn-based artist received specially made lenses that corrected this problem last year and has recently been experimenting with works in color. This set of basketballs were crafted out of Blue Calcite Crystal and represent how artifacts from our time might look in the […]

Recap: Daniel Arsham – “My First Show in Japan, Year 2044” @ Nanzuka

Daniel Arsham currently has on display his first solo presentation in Japan at Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo, also his second in Asia following his show at Galerie Perrotin in Hong Kong last autumn (covered). Titled My First Show in Japan, Year 2044, the exhibition introduces his signature concept of “Fictional Archaeology” to local art lovers. Capturing the future from an archaeological perspective, his haunting pieces allow viewers to imagine the possibility of various everyday objects becoming artifacts of the future – from technical gadgets such as cameras, players, phones to “fossilized” humans themselves.
