The first crypto art exhibition of the 59th Venice Biennale, “The Time of the Chimeras,” will open on April 20 at Palazzo Bernardo Venice, San Polo 2186, concurrent to the opening of the Venice Biennale theme exhibition. The exhibition will last until Nov. 27, 2022.
As the top multichain crypto wallet in Asia, BitKeep supports the trading of NFTs on the Ethereum, Polygon and BNB Smart Chain networks, among other mainnets on its NFT market, and allows users to buy NFTs with the token of their choice. As the authorized wallet of the exhibition, BitKeep has added all exhibiting projects to its NFT market and supports mints, transfers and other transactions — with no NFT transaction fees currently charged.
The Venice Biennale in Venice, as well as the Kassel Documenta in Germany and the Sao Paulo Biennial in Brazil, are the most prominent art exhibitions worldwide. Since its birth in 1895, the Venice Art Biennale has been the most important extensive exhibition group in the world of art, leading the development of modern and contemporary art history worldwide with a distributed, open and diversified natural management system.
The “Chimera Age” Global Encryption Art Exhibition is co-sponsored by Global Crypto Art (GCA) DAO, a global decentralized organization of encrypted art, together with the Venice Biennale Committee and the National Pavilion of Cameroon.
GCA DAO has invited 15 senior contemporary art curators, critics, collectors, NFT investors and outstanding crypto art-industry practitioners from the art world and the worldwide crypto industry to form the GCA Art Council that will nominate, evaluate and vote to decide the 23 artists to submit to the Venice Commission for confirmation. The works of the 23 participating artists in the exhibition involve photography, film, animation, sculpture, installation and other mediums, integrating a variety of comprehensive art media.
As the first series of NFT works to be publicly released for the first crypto art exhibition of the Venice Biennale, MetaEpica will be the most intimate and significant reward for the exhibition’s supporters. Any supporters who donate more than 0.15 Ether (ETH) to this crypto art exhibition will receive a whitelist for a free mint, and GCA DAO will reserve 197 NFTs as contributions and community rewards to thank the early workers for the project and the active participants in the community’s construction. BitKeep supports the transaction and minting of MetaEpica.
Facing the inevitable development of blockchain technology and NFT art, BitKeep will continue to provide a safe and convenient NFT marketplace for global creators and developers. Featuring an aggregated NFT market in its app, BitKeep hopes to conduct more in-depth cooperation with outstanding artists through this exhibition and provide creators and collectors globally with a trading channel for quality digital assets to break the traditional ways of internet transaction, redefining the NFT market.
