About The Event


“Digital Art: Navigating the Virtual Canvas"

In this sequel to our exploration of the art market, we delve into the realm of digital art, unearthing the disparities, advantages, and drawbacks when compared to traditional art.   We begin by examining the intricacies of collecting and exhibiting digital art, revealing the unique challenges related to authenticity and preservation. Through the power of technology, we explore how digital art can break down barriers and reach the masses, transforming the way art is experienced and owned.  We'll also contemplate the evolution of collecting in this digital age, pondering the impact of NFTs and how traditional practices are adapting.   A pivotal aspect of this discussion is the artist's perspective. Are they embracing this change, and does it truly benefit them? We aim to uncover whether the digital shift offers new horizons or poses formidable challenges for artists.
