This will age really well | Mint me up - Chapter 1 in a nutshell
Let's take a brief look on how the first chapter of the first Romanian NFT group exhibition unfolded. Come join us for the 2nd Chapter, the 22nd of July!
(Almost) one week ago we kicked off the first NFT group exhibition in Romania 💥 In a global context in which NFTs are both acclaimed and frowned upon, and a local scenery of orthodox paintings NFT auction ⁉️ or one-time evening events, we decided on a more scalable, open-for-anyone solution.
We wanted to bring the whole NFT concept& framework closer to the artistic community and its publics so we invited artists to release 10 free NFTs each and to gift them at the opening on a first-come-first-served basis. Daria & Raluca helped our guests with the transfers and explanations and we kindly thank them for their efforts &good vibes 🙌 The point is to explore & think together how useful and sustainable this non-fungible-token ecosystem is for artists – in a precarious world in which more often than not art is regarded as serious work –and to ease the transition to that by helping some of the artists get their Tezos-based wallets and mint their first NFT. We advised both the artists and the public to choose Kukai Wallet, as it is the only browser-based Google/Twitter solution – so the easiest user experience.
We were thrilled to see and chat to visitors of all ages and to observe them enthusiastically scanning the QR codes and discovering invisible works, pieces that were there, but not really, not in their physicality, but rather in their digital omnipresence. Linking materiality to a parallel reality intrigued the guests and softly put them in the collector’s mindset of comparing what they had gathered in their Kukai wallets. Quite expectedly, animated NFTs were the hits.
But let’s put all that in images:
