This past June, Daniel Arsham took to his Instagram account to unveil a series of sculptures portraying eroded magazine publications. One of the more standout pieces was his version of a Vogue issue crafted using quartz, selenite, and hydrostone materials. Sized roughly at 47 7/8 x 36 1/2 inches, the three-dimensional artwork was recently sold at a Phillips’ 20th Century & Contemporary Art auction in Hong Kong. The final hammer price for the work was 2.3 million HKD (approx. $ 200k USD).

A portion of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to the HOCA Foundation to support the institute’s future initiatives and help the “foundation democratize art and enrich the cultural life of Hong Kong,” as per HOCA in a statement. In addition to Arsham’s sculptural pieces, other participating artists who have donated works directly for the benefit auction include Futura, José Parlá, Felipe Pantone, Cleon Peterson, VHILS, Shepard Fairey, and Erik Parker.
