Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is delighted to present a new commission for The Box by New York based artist Daniel Arsham. Arsham, whose interventions into the fabric of the gallery challenge our relationship to space and accepted realities, has been invited to respond to The Box - a miniature project space consisting of a floating white cube set inside a black vertical opening. The Box is a unique architectural space through which the gallery facilitates new projects with important emerging and established artists.
Daniel Arsham was the last artist to be invited by Merce Cunningham to collaborate with him on the set designs for his performances, following an impressive roster of Cunningham's artist-collaborators including Robert Rauschenberg and Jasper Johns. Recent solo exhibitions include the Park Avenue Armory, New York for the set design of Merce Cunningham Dance Company's last performances;Festival d'Avignon, Avignon; OhWow Gallery, Los Angeles; and Miami Art Museum, Miami. Recent group exhibitions include Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York; Musée de Valence, Valence; New Museum, New York; In Extenso, Clermont-Ferrand; Museum of Contemporary Art, Florida; and Musée d'Art Contemporain, Marseilles. Arsham's commission for The Box will run concurrently with his solo exhibition at Galerie Perrotin, Paris.
