Soon after the second edition of the NFT Paris, the capital of France will host another grandiose non-fungible initiative. According to the announcement of February 10th, Europe's largest modern art museum, Centre Pompidou, is to host an NFT exhibition, featuring a CryptoPunk #110, an Autoglyph #25, and other blue-chip tokens by 16 NFT artists.
The museum states that the main goal of the upcoming exhibition scheduled for March is to explore the intersection between art and blockchain.
The event will mark the historic moment when the legendary museum showcases the NFT artworks on one site with the physical masterpieces by Frida Kahlo, Vassily Kandinsky, and Henri Matisse.
In addition to the CryptoPunk and the Autoglyph NFTs, tokens by famous artists like Jonas Lund, Rafael Rozendaal, and Jill Magid will be showcased at Centre Pompidou.
The largest web3 company that owns the CryptoPunks NFT project, Yuga Labs, presented the CryptoPunk #110 within its Punks Legacy Project, as part of which, the 'Punks' are being donated to the leading art galleries around the globe. As for Autoglyph #25, the collection creator, Larva Labs, also donated the token to the establishment.
“Seeing CryptoPunk #110 displayed in the Centre Pompidou, arguably the world’s most prestigious contemporary art museum, is a great moment for the Web3 and NFT ecosystem, and we’re honored to help drive this cultural conversation,” Yuga Labs co-founder Greg Solano commented on the upcoming exhibition.
Xavier Rey, director of the French National Museum of Modern Art, noted: “Web3 is an innovative territory that artists have now seized upon to create original and daring work, and this collection reaffirms our support for artists in their conquest of new means of expression, which is the foundation of modern art.”
The future exhibition comes as a significant milestone for the whole NFT industry. Being in Paris, don't miss attending the legendary art and culture hub, Centre Pompidou, to become part of the historic moment and enjoy the arts.
