"NFTs MUST GO! is a curated exhibition bridging the tech and art worlds. It highlights the expansive and expressive medium of the NFTNFTs (non-fungible tokens) essentially link a digital file to a smart contract on the blockchain, creating uniqueness, with functions like certification, authentication, data transparency, dynamic artworks, or an xcircle membership.
The title of the exhibition "NFTs MUST GO!" is a shrill quote from an art collector and presents xcircle with a welcome opportunity to break down the multiple fears and biases attached to NFTs. We seek to illuminate the creative possibilities behind these three magical letters!
Declaring "NFT must go!" is akin to calling for the banishment of the brush or the camera or the kiln. Like the brush or the camera, the NFT is simply a tool for artists working in the digital media space.
The exhibition features augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (XR) sculptures by Florian Adolph and Ugo Dossi, AI photographs by Max Haarich, works by NFTism artist Kenny Schachter, generative art by Holger Lippmann, paintings, soft toys, and historical NFTs from meme culture icon PEPE the Frog, analog-induced CHAOS in digital loops by artist Christof Babinsky, glitch GIFs by search engine artist Gretchen Andrew, PlastoCorals by Tamiko Thiel,
animated cut-outs by street art creator Daniel Man, cyberspace animations by Virtual Human Ava Verce, transformative moss artist collective Tinoss, erotic still lifes by Tondo Smiling, lenticular paintings by Tatjana Lee, light prisms by Betty Mü and NFTs by Olive Allen.
The exhibition is aimed at an audience curious about the art of this decade, open to a dialogue with the technologies of our time, and eager to learn what Web3, the Metaverse, and the blockchain will ultimately mean for society: the potential for expansion into the digital space, set in motion by the invention of the iPhone (2007) and the theoretical foundations of science fiction literature.
xcircle is a curated marketplace for Digital Fine Art. Regular physical exhibitions bridge the gap between the traditional art collectors and the NFT community!
