Is the Earth flat? Does our world end beyond its blue sky veil? What is infinity?

60 years ago, humanity made a quantum leap into uncharted territory – the cold and dark cosmic void. Humanity’s pursuit of knowledge is constantly transforming the world around us, through opening new perspectives and changing the depth of meaning of everyday life. What is space and what do we definitively know about it? The answer is obvious – we don’t know much.

Growing up we all saw celestial pictures in school textbooks, the famous photos from orbit and even heard stories from the few people that were lucky enough to reach past Earth’s boundary. But most of what we know of space is audiovisual, which at some point we agreed to believe wholeheartedly.

Practically no one has their own tangible experience of being outside beyond the Earth’s stratosphere. There are still people who doubt the common thought that the Earth is flat. Maybe it’s true. Maybe it’s not. It doesn’t really matter when this question comes to the dialogue between artist and the audience. The artist produces their own singular reflection of reality through individualistic and subjective experiences, just like the unique patterns of the neural pathways in the kaleidoscope of our brain. So what is the difference between the artists cosmos and the actual scientific discoveries?

The more I learn, the more I realise how much I don’t know.

Therefore the answer is obvious. They are equal.

NFT’s can be the answer to the humanity’s material consumption and general hoarding. When the possibility of relocating to Mars emerges, you won’t be taking physical objects with you like the statue of David. Now more than ever, we feel how fast the world moves towards intangible technologies. The time has come to turn the page of the world history of art and to take a step into the unknown. To look into the darkness and learn how to love unconditionally the works of art born in the new digital age. And eventually you realise that the Cosmos has always been inside you.

For those who want to view the exhibition but may be reluctant because of a lack of understanding surrounding such a new industry, the event organizers are going to offer an audio guide to help the event’s guests. The exhibition will be launched on an easy-to-access platform where visitors can easily enjoy art through any device. Some of the featuring artists are Grimes, BossLogic, BakaArts, Ben Mauro, mbsjq, Micah Johnson (creator of Aku and recipient of the 2020 NFT of the Year), Dangiuz, Brickspacer.

The team plan to support talented artists, educate collectors, and make a contribution to the heritage of our generation. The CryptoArtMuseum Foundation is a non-commercial organization to help NFT art to develop as a full-fledged sphere of art.
