NXT.ART is where art and technology converge. NXT.ART provides the world with a look at the present art landscape in Africa, explores tech’s impact on the next iteration of African art, while also creating a platform for emerging talent. NXT.ART will be a physical art fair and conversations series, coupled with an online NFT commerce space.
In 2022 NXT.ART will debut in Lagos, Nigeria. The NXT.ART pavilion will showcase contemporary art from galleries in Africa and the African Diaspora designed to focus on the distinctive and connective themes in Black culture. The 5-day experience also includes ‘Curated Convos’ featuring local and international artists, curators, collectors and investors. The anchor piece of the NXT.ART Pavilion will be a commissioned immersive and experiential art installation. The NXT.ART Host Committee comprised of prominent art collectors and curators in Africa and the Diaspora will screen and select the galleries featured in the pavilion. In addition, the host committee will be charged with selecting the NXT.ART prized artist commissioned for the pavilion’s experiential art installation.
