It’s been a big week in Miami for artist Daniel Arsham. His show “The Future Was Written” is on view at the National YoungArts Foundation—something to celebrate with two events this week.
First was a dinner on Tuesday, December 1 with The Surf Lodge at The Hall South Beach. The evening celebrated Snarkitecture, the design practice he co-founded with Alex Mustonen. The media sponsor for the night was Out of Order magazine, and guests like Doreen Remen, Casey Fremont, Hans Ulrich-Obrist, Kyle deWoody, Dev Hynes, and Pamela Anderson(!) enjoyed dinner from Chef Spike Mendelsohn. The evening concluded with a late-night afterparty hosted by Out of Order‘s editor Dorian Greenspan.
On Thursday—after participating in Whitewaller‘s panel on Instagram’s role in the art world that afternoon—Arsham held a screening at The Miami Beach Edition of the fourth chapter of his film Future Relic. Hosted by Jefferson Hack, Daniel Arsham, Rose McGowan, Emmanuel Perrotin, and Arturo Castro, and presented by nowness, the viewing brought together guests including Katie Holmes, Chelsea Leyland, Kate Foley, Andre Saraiva, and A TRAK.
“Future Relic 04 is the most complex film I’ve made in terms of scenography, with all of the sets constructed by my studio team.” said Arsham. “This film is very different from the other sections of Future Relic, and I think it gives audiences a forecast of where the rest of the film is going, both conceptually as well as in its tone.”
The film was produced by Arsham’s production company Film the Future, founded in collaboration with director and cinematographer Ben Louis Nicholas and producer Courtney Andrialis.
