Event Details

Firetti Contemporary and MORROW collective announce NFT|IRL a forthcoming group exhibition where NFT artworks and their physical counterparts will be exhibited side by side. This is the first of its kind exhibition in the region. It merges the digital and physical worlds and aims to build bridges between the crypto art world and the traditional or IRL (in real life) art world.

MORROW collective is the leading NFT partner for galleries and they are NFT curators. With MORROW, Firetti Contemporary have produced a series of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from a selection of artists, which are hosted in the MORROW gallery in the virtual reality platform called Cryptovoxels.

NFT | IRL forms as a response to the rapidly changing landscape of art and creativity. By closing the gap between thetwo worlds, we are aiming to make NFTs more accessible to those in the real life sphere. The exhibition will consist of digital NFTs, displayed on screens next to the physical works. They will also have access to augmented reality and VR, through technology in the exhibition.

The participating artists include: Ahmed Emad, Kadara Enyeasi, Irvin Pascal, Josh Rowell, Jacques Vartabedian, Jacques Vartabedian, Helidon Xhixha and Fatiha Zemmouri
