Sydney’s First Major International NFT Exhibition Has Launched

Works by Beeple, Trevor Jones, Yambo and other talent shaping the NFT art world will take over Bondi Beach in Sydney’s first major international NFT exhibition in March 2022.

Satellite exhibition will be held at Twenty Twenty Six Gallery in Bondi Beach from 9 March through to the 3 April 2022.

The Satellite experience is twofold, a month-long digitally immersive and sensory experience of NFTs and an educational hub where visitors can discover and learn about collecting and creating NFTs.

Some of the highlights that are coming include Beeple’s seminal Into the ether and Trevor Jones’s Bitcoin Angel.

A new unique artwork by BossLogic will also be auctioned off with the proceeds going to Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef, a non-profit protecting reefs around the world.

NFT sales have so far reached around $3.5 billion in the first three quarters of this year according to the Hiscox Online Art Trade Report for 2021.

Numbers like this prove that the digital art market is much more than just a fleeting flash of the pan phenomena.

But still hoping to take this idea even further into the mainstream, Satellite aims to offer Sydney’s first immersive experience for the NFT curious.

This will provide an important catalyst for the financial and cultural inclusion of NFT art.

Satellite’s director, Katie Tholo of REVOLO Art Agency said, “We want to give people the opportunity to engage with NFT art beyond the screens of personal devices in a new and meaningful way as well as offering a bridge between the digital and physical worlds.”

“By highlighting the transformative power NFTs are having on the creative economy and by showcasing world-leading digital artists who have traditionally been side-lined by the established art world, we hope to provide a forum to educate and demonstrate the value and power of digital art.”

Satellite has partnered with Studio Messa to bring the physical gallery to life through immersive and sensory storytelling befitting the incredible works on display.

But to deliver an unforgettable and impactful at this large-scale event, Satellite is supported by corporate partners including Apollo Capital, Carbon Neutral, Coinspot, Illuvium, Mawson Infrastructure Group, QT Hotels and Studio Messa.

This event will be open to the public for free and Satellite will host a live charity auction, a series of panel talks and networking events, provenance and the latest trends around NFT’s.

From opening night, visitors will have the opportunity to purchase works virtually or through QR codes that link to the community-driven NFT marketplace Foundation.

Arguing her case for NFT’s importance Tholo added, “Blockchain technology and NFTs are giving power back to the individual, both creators and collectors, by making transactions and information transparent and public.”

NFT’s each contain incorruptible in-built documentation of their origin, ownership history and current ownership status.

This ability to prove digital ownership is a breakthrough that allows NFT artists to efficiently monetise their digital creations through primary sales and recurring royalties.

Notably, Satellite will be the first of an annual series of exhibitions that presents digital contemporary art utilising technological and blockchain innovation.

Remarkably, the carbon footprint of all NFT’s exhibited at the event. Through work with Carbon Neutral, this includes all carbon emissions associated with NFT minting, bidding, sale and transfer ownership.

NFT stands for non-fungible token, meaning a unique asset, the authenticity of which is encrypted through blockchain technology, asserting its originality and, therefore, its worth.

A blockchain however is a distributed database that is shared among the nodes of a computer network. As a database, a blockchain stores information electronically in digital format.
