Daniel Arsham


"Multi-disciplinary" is used pretty casually in contemporary art - yet few artists today are interesting or relevant when they explore other creative realms.

Daniel Arsham (b. 1980) is one of the best young American artists working (relevantly) in different spheres. Originally from Miami, Arsham's career was launched after designing sets for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company (although his background was not in stage design). This was followed by a carte-blanche invitation from Dior to design some of their dressing rooms in the Los Angeles boutique. In 2007 he co-founded Snarkitecture with Alex Mustonen to focus on projects with an architectural bent. They had a significant and impressive presence at several incarnations of Design Miami. 

This sculpture, now heavily sought-after on the secondary market, was Arsham's first "Relic". Similar to his architectural projects, a 90's cordless phone made of plaster or stone, seems to be disintegrating or recently excavated. 

Each of the "Future Relics" have been augmented by a short film created by the artist. 

In March of 2017, Arsham released the sixth example of his "Future Relic" series. Based on a Sony Walkman, the edition, like its predecessors, sold out instantly.

- How much does it cost to ship?
For shipments within North America, we typically charge a flat rate fee. Many items on our site will list the rate. For shipping outside of North America, we can easily provide a quote and will look for the most efficient and economical option.

Most of the items on our site can be easily shipped internationally.

Occasionally we will recommend that an artwork be removed from its frame for shipping. Larger framed works are typically framed with plexiglass. We export over 80% of what we sell, so we are comfortable shipping anywhere. 

- Are there additional taxes or fees?
When a work is valued above $2,500 usd there is a possibility of tax of 0.35%, but this is applied sporadically. There can similarly be an additional fee for customs brokerage and this can range from $20 - $65. US Taxes, duties and customs brokerage are not included in our flat rate shipping. However most of our shipments to the US enter without any additional fees.
