The exhibition will bring together some of the most influential artists and collectors of the digital and crypto art world.
The exhibition features early artistic explorations around cryptocurrencies, from Sarah Meyohas’ Bitchcoin (2015) and Robert Alice’s Portraits of a Mind (2019), to the iconic RarePepe genesis NFT.
Andy Warhol’s Untitled (Flower) (circa 1985; minted 2021), Tyler Hobbs’ Fidenza series, Refik Anadol’s immersive data visualisation, and more, are placed in conversation with each other to trace the innovations of image-making technologies as well as their new identities on-chain.
NFTs have seen explosive growth this year and we can no longer ignore them. The advent of NFTs has opened a new paradigm for the creator economy, and similar to how we created a seamless gateway to digital assets, we now want to do the same for NFTs. As a business, we believe that NFTs have much potential to grow — considering their synergy with crypto, art, music, and esports. They are a new class of digital assets that will revolutionise the world, the way crypto already has.Yusho Liu, Founder and CRO of Coinhako
