Art Basel Miami
Humans + Machines: NFTs and the Ever-Evolving World of Art
December 2 – 4, 2021
Tezos has gained global acclaim as a platform of choice for artists looking to mint NFTs because of its energy-efficient design, passionate artist community and low transaction costs. At Art Basel Miami Beach 2021, Tezos and media artists will be in the spotlight.
This exhibition, built on the energy-efficient Tezos blockchain, explores the everchanging collaboration between art, technology and culture. Through an interactive NFT experience with artist Mario Klingemann and a thought-provoking speaker series, audiences are invited to examine the larger questions about creating art in our digitally native world. On this new digital frontier, who plays the role of the artist when a machine is the maker? And what can we make together?
Minting an NFT on Tezos uses the equivalent energy of a Tweet or email. Back in April, Kelly Richardson joined The FEN, a coordinated cleanNFT drop on Tezos to raise awareness of the environmental harm of minting on PoW platforms.
For Art Basel she joins media artists Mario Kingemann, Matt DesLauriers, Iskra Velitchkova, beesandbombs, Helena Sarin, sutu, Auriea Harvey, Al Crego, LIA, Universal Everything, Eko33, Anna Lucia, Ganbrood, Simon Denny, Kevin Abosch, Henrick Uldalen, Linda Dounia, Memo Akten, Tais Koshino, Zach Lieberman, p1xelfool and Joanie Lemercier.
