An Afternoon of Conversation
The blockchain has lately dominated conversations about technology’s impact on all sorts of markets, from currencies to CryptoKitties. For the arts, whose markets are largely opaque and unregulated, blockchain technologies have the potential to fully upend traditional models.
Artists, entrepreneurs and established players in the art market and tech communities will participate in panel discussions and solo presentations. The afternoon has been appropriately scheduled between the opening of Frieze Art Fair and New York’s Creative Tech Week.
The afternoon will conclude with a presentation of a new work by Hayden Dunham that addresses the information systems inherent to blockchain technology. Commissioned in part by David Gryn of Daata Editions, with support from Tech:NYC, the work will be registered on Monegraph and available for purchase (and subsequent tracking) during Frieze London.
