3rd Annual Decentraland Metaverse Art Week Aug 24 – 28
The 3rd Annual Metaverse Art Week is taking place this week in Decentraland. Inspired by this year’s Venice Biennale, the third annual Metaverse Art Week will explore how the human spirit is hardwired to elicit an emotional response when presented with art inspired by mathematical designs present in nature.
Metaverse Art Week 2022 will feature immersive art installations, performance and conceptual art productions, and NFT exhibitions. The week is centered around a 3D Sculpture garden known as ‘Art Plaza,’ a gravity-defying open air museum.
“Metaverse Art Week 2022 is coming at a pivotal moment for the larger adoption of Web3 technology and decisions about our digital reality. We believe that the future of the internet should be built by decentralized communities who do not seek to profit off of user data, imagination, and creativity,” said Creative Director of the Decentraland Foundation, Sam Hamilton.
Well known NFT marketplaces Opensea, Known Origin, SuperRare, Rarible, Makers Place and Portion will have various exhibitions throughout the week.
