France seems to be at the forefront of the NFT revolution. The global centre for arts, which is headquartered in Paris and has one of the most prominent NFT brands, Sorare will host an NFT art exhibit.
The Centre Pompidou is hosting a special show for NFTs featuring its latest permanent exhibit. The museum will present a unique collection of digital tokens made by 13 artists from around the world this summer.
NFTs include CryptoPunk #110, Autoglyph #25 and many other highly-coveted NFTs. The collection will also be a testimony to the creativity and innovation in the world of digital creation and blockchain.
The museum announced via Twitter that it was purchasing a collection of works that examine the relationship between artistic expression and blockchain. This includes its first NFTs. The exhibit will include 18 projects from 13 international and French artists.
Director of the French National Museum of Modern Art, Xavier Rey, reinforced the museum’s commitment to digital art technology and blockchain technology. He called web3 an “innovative terrain” that allows artists to explore new ways of expression.
Donations to Yuga Labs
Yuga Labs, which is behind the popular NFT projects such as Bored Ape Yacht Club or CryptoPunks has also contributed to NFTs becoming more widely recognized in the art world. They donated CryptoPunk #305 during Art Basel 2022 to the Institute of Contemporary Art in Miami.
Yuga Labs announced its intention to donate additional Punks to world-leading art institutions in the future. This latest exhibition at the centre of the arts is crucial for both Yuga Labs as well as the exhibition.
Greg Solano is co-founder of Yuga Labs and sees this moment as a significant one for the NFT/web3 ecosystem. It will open the door to a greater appreciation and understanding of digital art and how it impacts modern society.
Paris Leads the NFT Revolution
Paris is known for its global art scene. This exhibition will promote NFTs to the wider public. France is not the only country leading the NFT revolution in art.
