NFT BIENNIAL

The first edition of the NFT Biennial in January-February 2023 showcased the works of more than 100 artists curated by 10 curators across 10 exhibitions spanning 9 global locations. Drawing over 8,000 visitors and media outreach of over 5 million.

NFT Biennial, in an effort that is the first of its kind, will attempt to throw a spotlight on the potential of NFTs to become a fully-fledged art form through a rhizomic, collective and dynamic organisation. We believe in the digital technologies that open up infinite horizons for the artistic creation and that the future is made of our collective acts.

The CATHARSIS of a STRANGE PROPHECY

With a triple-dotted question mark, The Catharsis of a Strange Prophecy asks you to imagine a happiness beyond measure and consider a new portrait of what is familiar and what is unknown. It invites us to create a poetic human in an abstract digital universe that we will perhaps call our true home.
