Curatorial Thesis

We believe art that is foundational, innovative, and made possible by this new medium is more likely to retain value in the long run due to its uniqueness and substance. These attributes render them inimitable and irreplaceable, qualities present in all art that has stood the test of time.

These make use mainly of NFT technology’s commercial advantages, drawing limited artistic influence from other novel aspects of the technology.

This framework reflects our belief that art is essential for helping us understand blockchain’s growing importance in the world.
