In recognition of the incredibly vibrant crypto art scene in France and around the world, FIAF is participating in NFT.NYC.
FIAF Presents NFT: New French Touch, a unique exhibition and conversation celebrating NFTs the French way, will feature more than 20 established and emerging crypto artists whose works illustrate the remarkable stylistic range of this new medium. From pioneers of the French Movement, such as Alotta Money, LuluxXX and Pascal Boyart, to international artists influenced by French culture in their œuvre, such as Robness, Jivinci, Miss Al Simpson, and Kevin Abosch, the exhibition affirms the incredible scope of NFTs and offers a compelling introduction for those new to the genre.
Join us on Monday, June 20 for the exhibition opening and special panel discussions in English. The evening will kick off with a free opening reception in the FIAF Gallery. The ticketed portion of the evening will include a preview of the exhibition in Tinker Auditorium featuring never-before-seen artwork created exclusively for this event, entry to the panel discussions and cocktail reception, and a chance to win an NFT created by DataDada artist Albertine Meunier.
This event is brought to FIAF by 0x4rt and Leila Khazaneh.
