17th Edition of GIORNATA DEL CONTEMPORANEO
NFT Politics and Poetics
December, 7th 2021
11 AM PST (2PM EST)
Panel Discussion on Zoom with curators Valentino Catricalà, Domenico Quaranta and digital sculptor Auriea Harvey
The conversation will focus on the impact of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) on both the forms, contents and aesthetics of the artwork, as well as on the structures and biases of the art world. Some relevant questions that will be raised are: do NFTs force the production of easy pieces and short looping animations, or more complex forms are possible? Are there dominant or emerging aesthetics? What's the influence of platform and collectors? Is this emerging market sustainable? What is it doing in terms of access, racial and gender equity? How are DAOs and collective ownership shaping the field?
