We keep hearing more and more about NFTs (non-fungible tokens), a digital technology that allows you to authenticate a digital work and make it unique.  These new tools are changing all our habits in a very real way, even our cultural ones.  It’s not just a matter of visiting a museum from your couch.  There are also new forms of artistic expression and learning by using augmented reality.  Take a look at some of the new types of crypoart:

 

Seattle NFT Museum

Even though it has a physical space in the city itself, the museum’s concept is one of the first of its kind.  Instead of the usual framed pictures, the pieces are confined to screens displaying art in NFT format.  Thirty ultra-HD screens, ranging in size from 32 to 85 inches, provide a unique experience.  Virtual visits aren’t on offer at the moment, but some of its collection is available online.

 

LALAContemporary

This NFT gallery in Toronto, founded by Claudia Lala, is a space for new and independent art projects.  It acts as a platform for emerging artists from North and Latin America.  It stands out amongst the crowd thanks to the innovative and cutting-edge ideas it features, such as the Fractal Totems exhibition, which consists of an immersive experience in the dark room of this animated work.  The gallery is currently looking for a new location.

 

Museo del Futuro (MUFO)

This museum will be open in Mexico City until July 3 this year.  With design installations, NFTs, and LED sculptures, this space allows visitors to experience a museum in a completely new way.  Aside from the digital art, there are also gastronomic creations, as well as the opportunity to immerse yourself in mixology (i.e., the combination of flavours, colours, aromas, and textures).  The idea is to make it an itinerant space and take it to other cities around the world, including New York, Los Angeles, and Barcelona.

Museum of Crypto Art

The MoCA is a virtual art gallery founded by Pablo Rodríguez-Fraile and Colborn Bell.  It was designed by Desiree Casoni and launched in April 2020 within Somnium Space, an open and social virtual reality world.  MoCA has a huge collection of tokenized art, a cryptographic universe that is only getting bigger and more popular.

 

Museum of Contemporary Digital Art

This is a space for reflection upon the relationships between the different parties involved in digital art technology, a meeting point for artists, institutions, collectors, and art lovers.  It exhibits digital artworks and focuses on documenting, collecting, and promoting this cultural neo-phenomenon.
