Decentraland is hosting its Third Metaverse Art Week



August 15, 2022

The metaverse is expanding at an unbelievable rate, with mainstream brands and companies creating their own virtual experiences in the metaverse. Some top players, such as Decentraland, are the pioneers in the metaverse space and provide these brands with a place to interact with their customers. 

However, the metaverse does not only serve the brands and the consumer as it is also a great opportunity for the creators to explore. For instance, Decentraland is hosting its third Metaverse Art Week that will focus on metaverse evolution and human-nature relationships. The theme for the art week is chosen to be The World is Made of Code and will focus on the relationship between man and nature and how it affects the evolution of the metaverse. 

About The Event 

The art week will showcase the intricacies of the theme using different mediums such as NFT exhibitions, art designs, discussion panels, live performances and so on. While Art Week is a metaverse event being hosted on Decentraland, it will see contributions from SuperRare and OpeSea, who will showcase some of the top works from the previous year.

Apart from that, the event will also showcase Cash Labs exhibiting mixed-media pieces along with contributions from top NFT creators such as Damien Hirst, Estee Lauder and Justin Aversan. Apart from exhibiting different art mediums, the event will also encourage discussion and development of democratized creativity in the metaverse. 

“We believe that the future of the internet should be built by decentralized communities who do not seek to profit off of user data, imagination, and creativity. This year’s Art Week is a love letter to what the next generation of artists are doing in the metaverse,”

Sam Hamilton, the Creative Director of the Decentraland Foundation

It would be interesting to see what this Art Week will bring to the industry and how it will affect the metaverse space.
