“In the arts today, audiences are demanding to be more engaged. Arsham’s work will do that by pushing the definitions of the visual and performing arts, bringing the audience into both the sculptures and performance,” said Dennis Scholl, Knight Foundation’s Vice President/Arts.
Connecting the lines between art, architecture, dance, and theater, Daniel Arsham mines everyday experience for opportunities to confuse and confound our expectations of space and form. Arsham is known for subverting existing architectural structures in unconventional, playful ways: façades appear to billow in the wind, figures seem wrapped beneath the wall’s surface. His cross-disciplinary practice, historical inquiry, and satirical wit combine into an ongoing interrogation of the real and the imagined.
This exhibition and performances are made possible through the generous support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Arts Challenge.
