This year's NEW INC x Rhizome Art & Code track cohort have culminated their term with a new exhibition: NFS NSFW NFT, a 3D virtual project, hosted at New Art City, exploring the critical poetics of this particular not-for-sale, not-safe-for-work, and non-fungible-token moment.
Organized by track members Christopher Clary, Pearlyn Lii, and Mark Ramos, the exhibition features work by themselves, Bhavik Singh, Itziar Barrio, Johanna Flato, Lula Mebrahtu, Nahee Kim, Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga, Yeseul Song, and Ziyang Wu, across four, richly-designed digital rooms. There are also essays by curator and Foundation Director of Community, Lindsay Howard, and myself.
An opening on Zoom will be hosted tonight, Wednesday, July 20 at 430PM EDT—RSVP here.
Together the organizers and artists have created an exhibition that speaks to this moment in both form and function. They've also created a meaningful record of practices and perspectives that have come together under the auspices of NEW INC and Rhizome's dual track, which embodies our aspirations for our work together.
