Catch up on DACS' NFTs events series, Tokenomics: A New Economy of Art

    Blockchain is changing how art is made, sold and financed, where it circulates and who its custodians are. But can it really increase the creative and economic agency of artists? 

    DACS and Lucy Rose Sollitt presented four events discussing the impact of blockchain on how art is created, sold and financed, how blockchain is opening up a rapidly-evolving creative landscape and how creators and those working across the art market can navigate the opportunities and complexities that lie ahead.

    About the series

    The explosion in popularity of NFTs over the past year marks a moment of radical transformation within the art market.

    For better or worse, blockchain technology is ushering in new imaginaries and is rapidly evolving alternative sales, funding and ownership mechanisms which could rewrite the rules of the traditional art world. 

    Curated by Lucy Rose Sollitt, Tokenomics: A New Economy of Art, brought together pioneering artists and technologists, to discuss the concerns and to highlight and support thoughtful approaches which use the full potential of the technology to imagine fairer ecosystems of art making.  

    The series addressed the defining questions of this new era with the aim of helping artists and those working across the art market to navigate the opportunities and complexities that lie ahead.  

    Speakers included: Tega Brain, Primavera de Filippi, Simon Denny, Sarah Friend, Don Hanson, Keiken, Arif Khan, Kevin McCoy, Kyle Mcdonald, Rhea Myers, New Art City, Lucy Rose Sollitt, Michail Stangl, Ameer Suhayb Carter, Sammie Veeler, Xiaowei Wang, Mark Waugh
