Digital Art Fair will return in October 2023 for its Asia edition at K11 MUSEA, and is set to introduce a thrilling array of new features that will elevate the annual event to unprecedented heights.
Returning this year for its third edition, the Fair has quickly established itself as a prominent platform for digital art and NFTs (non-fungible tokens). With its fusion of art, technology, and creativity, DAFA has become a highly anticipated cultural destination for enthusiasts and collectors alike.
Despite challenges posed by the global pandemic, the previous two editions of the fair in Hong Kong attracted an impressive total of 35,000 visitors.
One of the standout moments was a collaboration with renowned auction house Sotheby’s, which resulted in a staggering US$2.33 million sale of Refik Anadol’s immersive room.
London-based and Shanghai-born modern contemporary artist, Jacky Tsai, was the Fair’s “Digital Artist of the Year,” in 2022, displaying hypnotising immersive displays and debuting his NFT “MetaSkull Collection 元宇宙骷髏.”
Digital Art Fair’s foray into K11 MUSEA aims to appeal to the new generation of tech-savvy art collectors. This year, organisers are expecting over 20,000 visitors, with a focus on the intersection of art, culture, technology, fashion, and luxury. Attendees can anticipate an immersive experience, featuring cutting-edge digital art installations and collaborations with industry leaders.
The highlight of Digital Art Fair 2023 will be the AI Art Zone. This curated section of the fair showcases groundbreaking works that challenge the boundaries between human creativity and artificial intelligence (AI). Visitors will have the unique opportunity to witness awe-inspiring installations, thought-provoking digital sculptures, and immersive multimedia experiences.
Embark on a captivating journey into the realm of innovation, unveiling the transformative power of technology in shaping the future of artistic expression.
Continuing its tradition of showcasing blue-chip digital fine art and “degen” NFT projects, the Fair will bring back its renowned immersive room—a focal point created by the “Digital Artist of the Year.” The recipient of this prestigious title will be announced during the fair, joining the ranks of previous winners such as Refik Anadol and Jacky Tsai.
In addition, the Fair will also host engaging workshops and talks. These activities aim to nurture the curiosity and passion of young minds, fostering a deeper appreciation for the endless possibilities that arise when art and technology converge. Attendees will have the chance to engage with interactive installations, dive into virtual reality realms, and witness mind-bending visual experiences that challenge traditional artistic boundaries.
