Over this past summer, Beyond Studios' hosted an immersive art party showcasing work from Nima Veiseh's collection that was featured at this year's Art Basel. This was a collaboration between Beyond Studios and Dress Abstract.
Nima Veiseh's painting explores the dynamic nature of memory and its reflection of the human condition. His process is enabled by Hyperthymesia, an extremely rare condition of having highly superior memory — an anomaly affecting 50 people worldwide, where he remembers every day of his life like film since the age of 15. His work renders natural moments of transition and connectivity into artistic expression, by exploring subjects as they journey through time. Hyperthymesia allows him to paint and see life in terms many layers. The dense overlays of paint involved in each piece, over 35 to over 100 hours of continuous process spanning months, are true to the additive, integrated and ever changing nature of memory, and his technique is referential to gesturalism and abstractionism.
As the event producer, I helped curate the guest list, send out the invitations, arrange the social promotion, book the entertainment, cater to the guests during the party, and manage the overall production before, during, and after the event.
