On January 11th, Daniel Arsham will be opening his first solo show of 2020 in Perrotin's Paris space. Entitled Paris 3020, the new exhibition from the Brooklyn-based artist features a suite of large-scale sculptures based on iconic busts, friezes and sculptures in the round from classical antiquity. Granted unprecedented access to the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais (RMN)'s molds and scans of some of the most iconic pieces from museum collections in Europe, Arsham taken his fictional archaeology to the next level by applying his techniques to actual items from he distant past instead of the near present hoping to "compress time, at once referencing the past, informing the present, and reaching towards a crystallized future."
