Hong Kong's K11 MUSEA Launches Large-scale Showcase of NFTs
Hong Kong's K11 MUSEA is launching a large-scale showcase of non-fungible token (NFT) art from April 29 to June 19, 2022, along with educational workshops and talks for all ages.
Over 200 pieces of art by more than 30 solo artists and NFT projects alike will be on display across nine floors, K11 MUSEA said. The artists vary in age from eight years old to world-class artists such as Tom Sachs and Takashi Murakami among others.
K11 MUSEA said that its 'METAVISION' exhibition is curating NFT art by some of the world's top artists. All of the art on display is collective estimated to fetch a total of over 26,000 ETH (approximately US$82 million / HK$646 million).
Hong Kong's local 8-year-old artist Arthus Ng is one of the popular names to look out for at the exhibition as his recent digital drawing of snakes has caught many eyes.
K11 MUSEA said that it is on a social mission to democratise and demystify NFT art for everyone by hosting exhibitions and talks.
The programme of workshops and talks has been designed for all ages to explore the fast-emerging sector of NFT art and is powered by HSBC and strategic partner Visa.
K11 MUSEA has been hosting immersive art and culture experiences since opening in 2019.
In 2021, K11 MUSEA collaborated with Sotheby's in the lead-up to presenting Wong Kar-wai's popular NFT launch. It has also partnered with Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama in showcasing an array of hybrid NFT and physical sculpture collectables.
