A shortlist of events we will be at this upcoming week!
Typing this whilst on the plane flying to Miami and ready to jump into the whirlwind madness of Miami Art Week which this year has been taken over by NFTs, crypto art and digital art.
I am excited to have the opportunity to speak at various events over the course of the week, representing VerticalCrypto Art and our community of artists.This is by no means an events guide, but simply a shortlist of events in which VerticalCrypto Art will be present either by speaking, moderating or curating.
I will be on for their first day of programming — Wednesday 1st December at 1PM EST | 6PM UTC at Super Car Rooms Miami. The panel topic will be “Hicetnunc: Creators & Community” — moderated by Aniko Berman from OneOf and joined by Felix Xu — founder of Arpa and Bella Protocol and Andressa Furtletti — artist. Find out more about this two day event and full programming here.
I am also incredibly thrilled to be collaborating with Tezos on their official programming: “Humans + Machines: NFTs and the Ever-Evolving World of Art” an exhibit and speaker series brought for the first time by a blockchain to @ArtBasel Miami Beach 2021.
The speaker series, from Thursday 2nd to Saturday 4th December, will explore questions about the role of human and machine in generative art and the new frontier of NFT art.
I will be speaking and moderating two panels on Thursday 2nd December:
