The E.A.T. / Engadin Art Talks collaborates with Tokengate on presenting NFT ART DAY ZRH – the first major conference on NFTs and the metaverse held in Switzerland. By focusing on the multifaceted world of NFTs, the aim is to offer a platform to artists, collectors, and institutions interested in NFTs and their possibilities.
The inaugural NFT ART DAY ZRH conference will take place on Sunday, 12th of June at the Kunsthaus Zürich Auditorium in the context of Zurich Art Weekend and prior to the opening of Art Basel in Basel.
International speakers will explore the multifaceted relationship between art and NFTs, the innovation of Blockchain technology, non-fungible tokens as an innovative conceptual medium, the NFT market, as well as the social impact of blockchain technology on our society. The panelists will include international NFT experts, collectors, artists, and curators as well as institutions that work and contribute to the realm of digital art.
NFT ART DAY ZRH’s mission is to build an NFT community that deeply connects with a more traditional understanding of the art world. To this end, NFT ART DAY ZRH aims to create the first platform that bridges the traditional art world with the emerging NFT and digital art communities. An annual conference, the first of which will take place this year, is set to become the physical meeting point for the interested audience.
NFT ART DAY ZRH is a collaboration between the E.A.T. / Engadin Art Talks and Tokengate. NFT ART DAY ZRH is a project initiated by Katharina de Vaivre, Managing Director of E.A.T. and Georg Bak, Head of Art Department at Tokengate.
