Christie’s To Host Daniel Arsham Auction
It marks the first single-artist sale by any international house.
From tomorrow until June 30, Christie’s will be running an online auction dedicated to the work of multi-disciplinary artist Daniel Arsham – the 39-year-old’s first single-artist sale by any international auction house.
The auction, entitled “Daniel Arsham: Archeology of The Future,” will offer an array of works from his latest collaborations with fashion house Dior, to his Future Relic and Crystal Relic series.
The sculptural works centre around Arsham’s themes of present-day relics, and an investigation of how the present is shaping the future by fossilising and crystallising iconic objects that are generational symbols.
The auction will support Manhattan’s Cooper Union School of Art with Arsham donating a unique creation – a twin-set of Pink Quartz and Blue Calcite Rolling Stone magazines – along with all proceeds from its sale going to the school where he graduated in 2003.
