Event Details

Not so long ago, some brilliant guy figured out that he could put a JPEG on the blockchain and create a financial asset. And he called it an NFT.

Art as financial asset? As Captain Renault said to Rick in Casablanca, “I’m shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”

What is an NFT? How is it a financial asset? What is the Blockchain? Do NFTs mark the beginning of a sea change in the art world? 

On June 24, 2021 at 6:30 pm, come join us at Redux Contemporary Art Center to hear two leading experts discuss NFTs, their potential impact on the art market, and answer your questions.
