Artist Daniel Arsham has responded to the formal structure of art galleries by carving through 300 feet of faux-concrete wall as part of his latest exhibition, “The Future Was Then.” Arsham’s exhibit as a whole consists of a series of rooms separated by the aforementioned destroyed walls, each housing a work of sculpture that serves as a backdrop for the real conversation-starter of a piece: “Wall Excavation” begins as a crude and literal hole in the wall which repeats until the aperture takes the shape of a human figure. The piece lets visitors critically reflect on the gallery as a space and their respective role within it, as well as the human capability to create and destroy.

The exhibition is on display at the Savannah College of Art and Design until July 24.
