DECENTRAL ART PAVILION

23 APRIL – 20 JUNE 2022

The Decentral Art Pavilion, which ran parallel to the Venice Art Biennale, opened its doors on April 23, 2022, at Palazzo Giustinian Lolin. The exhibition, entitled “Singularity,” was curated and organized by Florencia S.M. Brück, Javier Krasuk, Diego Lijtmaer, and Simone Furian, with installation design by David Rodríguez Gimeno and the photography section curated by Arianna Grava. The exhibition featured works by Beeple, Coldie, Aaron Penne, Studio Drift, Justin Aversano, XCOPY, Raphael Lacoste, Trevor Jones, Michael Yamashita, Annibale Siconolfi, Maxim Zhestkov, Filip Custic, and Matt DesLaurier, as well as over 200 NFT works of art created by 80+ leading international artists who were shaping the NFT space.

“Singularity” was a deep-dive into decentralized art, aimed to educate, engage and enthrall the aficionado, the collector, and the public at large. In such a fast-evolving creative dominion, it was crucial to foster a dialogue around NFTs and their impact on mainstream art in order to develop a wider public understanding and appreciation of decentralized technologies. The exhibition was the first anthological presentation of world-acclaimed NFT artworks, casting light on the spectacular culture around the NFT community, while fostering artistic experiences that determined the social significance of digitization for future generations. “For the first time in history, the blockchain evolves beyond its foundations in niche tech communities. NFTs are transcending industries and transforming economies: the Decentral Art Pavilion was an international event that focused on the artists, companies, and individuals using Non-Fungible Tokens to advance adoption of blockchain in the art world,” said Florencia S.M. Brück. “We experienced an unprecedented artistic evolution where contemporary art expanded in the blink of an eye. This expansion required a dialogue with traditional mechanisms so that all digital or analog artistic variants could coexist in a future where the blockchain would be part of our daily lives,” added Javier Krasuk.

Thanks to the enthusiastic support of key stakeholders in the NFT and blockchain world, such as SuperRare, Art Blocks, Dolce & Gabbana, Blue Swan, and Over the Reality, the exhibition was a unique opportunity for art and NFT technology to meet and an unmissable chance to enjoy and understand the very best of NFT art within the splendid setting of time-honored Venetian palazzo.

“We were thrilled to partner with the Decentral Art Pavilion during the Venice Biennale,” stated SuperRare co-founder and CEO John Crain. “We believed that digital artwork was at the vanguard of the art world, and this showcase during one of the leading art events in the world cemented the status of NFTs as a medium of the future.”

In the words of Erick Calderon, Art Blocks CEO, and founder, “At Art Blocks, we celebrated the intersection of art and technology, with the mission of elevating generative art in the art world. This was why we were excited to collaborate with the Decentral Art Pavilion during Venice Biennale. The exhibition exemplified the depth and breadth of artistic expression made possible through creative coding and showcased a range of approaches to generative art from some incredible artists.”

A particular section of the Decentral Art Pavilion space, entitled “0.14”, was curated by Robert Alice and proposed to retrace the early history of the movement that had shaken the contemporary art world. Some of the most significant early works were displayed, and viewers were invited to discover and understand the historical lineage of NFTs, the pioneers that brought them into being, and the different sub-genres that had emerged out of these early works at the very genesis of this field.

The Decentral Art Pavilion was open to the public and free to attend from April 23 to June 20, and it hosted 8 weekends of thematic NFT activities, including Generative Art curated by Art Blocks, Photography and NFTs curated by Arianna Grava, Women and NFTs curated by AKQA, Fashion and NFTs, Music and NFTs, and a series of live discussions entitled Alternative Spaces that invited audiences to think further about digital ownership, provenance, and the future of art.

The exhibition and its activities were also virtually accessible at the Decentral Art Pavilion Metaverse. The Over The Reality partnership allowed Decentral Art Pavilion to create an Augmented Reality (AR) event. Participants using the Over The Reality mobile platforms were able to see the NFTs overlaid all around Venice. The Decentral Art Pavilion encouraged dialogue around NFTs and their impact on mainstream art to develop a wider public understanding and appreciation of decentralized technologies.
