About Daniel Arsham :
New York based artist Daniel Arsham’s work explores the fields of fine art, architecture, performance, design and film. Raised in Miami, Arsham attended the Cooper Union in New York City where he received the Gelman Trust Fellowship Award in 2003.Soon thereafter Arsham toured worldwide with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company as the company’s stage designer. The experience lead to an ongoing collaborative practice which continues as Arsham works with world renowned artists, musicians, designers, and brands, from DIOR and RIMOWA to Pharrell Williams and many others. Arsham’s uchronic aesthetics revolves around his concept of fictional archaeology. Working in sculpture, architecture, drawing and film, he creates and crystallizes ambigu-ous in-between spaces or situations, and further stages what he refers to as future relics of the present. Always iconic, most of the objects that he turns into stone refer to the late 20th century omillennial era, when technological obsolescence unprecedentedly accelerated along with the digital dematerialization of ourworld. While the present, the future and the past poetically collide in hishaunted yet playful visions between romanticism and pop art, Daniel Arsham also experiments with the timeless-ness of certain symbols and gestures across cultures. Arsham’s work has been shown at PS1 in New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, The Athens Bienniale in Athens, Greece, The New Museum In New York, Contemporary Arts Center Cincinnati, SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah GA, California and Carré d’Art deNîmes, and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta GA.Arsham is represented by Galerie Perrotin in Paris, Hong Kong, New York, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. Arsham also shows with Baro Galeria in Sao Paulo, Ron Mandos in Amsterdam, and Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo. Daniel was recently appointed Creative Director for the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team.
