What’s more, bidding has opened for one collector to own the entire virtual exhibition itself. The winning bidder will be able to place a portal to the exhibition anywhere in the metaverse, theirs to host, personalise, and preserve.
All NFTs will be editions of one, with unlockable content throughout the collection — including a certified archive quality print, delivered free to first time NFT buyers.
Traversing tales of love, loss, hope, and solidarity, the sale offers a chance to own a once-in-a-century photography collection, conceived to stand as a historical reference for decades to come. Featured artists include Simon Roberts, Elena Helfrecht, Laura Pannack, Bradley Secker, Kristina Rozhkova and many more.
“Creators were hit incredibly hard during the pandemic,” says Marc Hartog, CEO of 1854 Media and founder of ART3. “This NFT sale will create an opportunity for collectors to own unique works while supporting artists.”
