Renowned digital artist and coder Dmitri Cherniak teamed up with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to bring a unique artwork to Avant Arte.
Dmitri Cherniak is best known for his “Ringers series”, especially for “Ringers #879”, also known as “The Goose” which was sold for $6.2 million at auction. Thus, Cherniak and LACMA will release a new silkscreen print edition ‘that nods to the algorithmic parameters of Generative art.’ It will come paired with the NFT edition, Ringers #962: The LACMA Iterations, which will drop on Avant Arte.
This digital artwork draws inspiration from Cherniak’s original piece, Ringers #962, currently featured in LACMA's permanent collection. This artwork was donated to LACMA as part of a historic contribution of blockchain-minted artworks by the pseudonymous patron of digital art, Cozomo de’ Medici.
The new version of “Ringers #962” is a 9-piece parameter sweep presented in a 3×3 grid. It delves into variations by adjusting the percentage of pegs sampled from 10% to 100% while maintaining the signature yellow peg in every composition.
Avant Arte and Dmitri Cherniak have also created a special print edition of 5 XL prints measuring 120cm x 120cm to randomly gift it to 5 lucky collectors of the main print edition. Winners will be announced after the 24-hour mint.
Ringers #962: The LACMA Iterations, priced at $865, will be available for grabs within a 24-hour window starting on September 28th. A portion of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to LACMA.
