At the meeting, the “Crypto Art System”, theorized by Andrea Concas, will be discussed for the first time, with which it goes beyond technological solutions, identifying its protagonists, along with the dynamics behind this revolution between communities, digital platforms and artists.
Curator Eleonora Brizi, who has experienced alongside artists, in unsuspected times, the great evolution and rise of Crypto Art, through dialogue with artists and their works, brings out the visions, aspirations, complexities, as well as the limits of a world that is all in the making and yet to be discovered.
