OHWOW recently announced a new exhibition called 'Kick the Tires and Light the Fires' by New York artist Daniel Arsham. The exhibition will present a new series of sculptures and two-dimensional work based on American cultural objects.

The objects are molded from geological elements such as obsidian, quartz, volcanic ash or glacial dust. The objects are cast at there original scale and appear as if they're deteriorating or un-finished. NBA basketballs, baseballs, a McDonald's sign, and Goodyear tires are just a few of the examples of the mass produced items that are so recognizable in American culture today.

OHWOW says, "these things translate our fickle attitude toward amassing possessions, visually editorializing the eventual disregard of everything we covet." Stats for Iconic Cultural Object Art Trending: Older & Mild
