First Brick & Mortar NFT Art Exhibition Debuts In Beijing – News Bitcoin News

In an industry first, a physical exhibition for digital art in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFT) is set to launch in China, showcasing notable works from leading artists in the NFT space and the winning entries from a global digital artwork competition.

Initiative Designed to Forge Greater Connections Between the Physical and Digital Art Realms

As greater mainstream attention turns to the NFT collectible and art mania that delivers new auction records every passing month, one group of industry leaders is bringing digital art to the physical realm. With its inaugural event titled, “Virtual Niche – Have you ever seen memes in the mirror?” a group of leading NFT evangelists and platforms are attempting to bring the Bitcoin and Polkadot communities together alongside the more traditional art world.

On March 26th, the 14-day event will begin in the UCCA Lab in Beijing before transitioning to Shanghai’s JinArt Center. The exhibition, which features hosts and sponsorship from both the art world and digital ecosystem, is designed to highlight the expanding potential for digital art while fostering greater connections between the two communities.

Besides hosting works from high-profile NFT artists, including 20 works from Beeple and Robert Alice’s “Portraits of a mind,” the exhibition will showcase the six winners of a digital art competition run by BlockCreateArt (BCA). The competition, which received 200 entries, asked participants to use Kusama’s canary logo as the inspiration for their submissions.

Christie’s, which recently auctioned Beeple’s “Everydays: the First 5000 Days” for a record-breaking $69.3 million, will be serving as an education support partner for the event. Their session, “Valuing Art in the Digital Age,” will be run by Christie’s Sara Mao. Additionally, Kusama will also be holding NFT workshops over the weekends for aspiring Chinese artists.
