Natively Digital is a collection of remarkable, unique artworks co-curated with Robert Alice. We showcase some of the earliest, raw NFTs built on pre-Ethereum chains alongside newer, complex NFTs that showcase the cutting edge technical innovation. From across four continents, we have sourced emerging crypto artists and the ‘old masters’ alike to exhibit their works. The multi-venue global exhibition is presented in partnership with Samsung, featuring their lineup of innovative TVs and Projectors to showcase various NFT artworks. The landmark auction will provide an opportunity for collectors, curators, and enthusiasts to focus on the emerging ideas and aesthetics contained within these works.
