NoCal | The New Art Collection: NFTs and Digital Art, presented in partnership with Art Market San Francisco
April 23, 2022 | 1:00 pm
Join ArtTable and Art Market San Francisco for a discussion on NFTs and digital art collecting!
As the art world continues to develop amidst the ever-evolving world of digital art, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies, so too must the established habits of art collectors. The past several years have seen significant developments in the digital realm, both when it comes to digital art itself as well as purchasing art on digital platforms. NFTs have quickly become a mainstay in art world news, with new information and initiatives being announced on a regular basis. Artists are more frequently using digital art to address gender and minority imbalances in the art world; art fairs are launching digital viewing sites and permitting non-physical galleries to show at the fair; and NFT platforms are going green. Where years ago purchasing a work of art online might have been unheard of, now it is a common occurrence. Art, and how we access it, is ever-changing, and we are all just trying to keep up.
In this discussion, we will hear from art advisor Claudia Worthington-Hess, Christina Steinbrecher, co-founder of Blockchain.art, a digital platform for artists and collectors, and Kelani Nichole, founder of TRANSFER, a gallery that explores the friction between virtual studio practice and its physical instantiation.
This program is free with fair admission and open to all. For more information about the fair and to purchase tickets, click here.
