France Celebrates 10 Years of Bitcoin With National Art Exhibition

In celebration of Bitcoin’s upcoming tenth birthday, international artists have come together to offer a crypto-themed exhibition in France.

Thematically, the exhibition will explore how cryptocurrencies can inspire artists to look beyond the traditional social parameters that influence their work, including the banking system. The collaborating artists have been given the challenge to identify how Bitcoin changes the relationship between artist and audience, and identify how it can liberate creative expressions.

Artist and organizer Pascal Boyart said that the exhibition, Art (r)evolution, is a unique opportunity for creative minds to explore how exactly the emerging technologies of blockchain and cryptocurrency may influence the art world. Artists were also given the mission to hide Bitcoin symbols within their work somewhere not easily visible to surprise buyers and attendees.

One of the most significant blockchain developments in the art community is the ability it gives creators and buyers to track and prove ownership over pieces of work. Event organizers have posted the question to participating artists, querying whether now it is possible to sell works independently without intermediaries, empowering the creators financially.

All of the showcased work will be available to purchase with some of the most prominent cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and Monero.

Held in Paris, Boyart said this was a deliberate choice as the French capital has historically been the place for new artistic movements, and he believes it can become the key location for the crypto-art movement to blossom. He added,”The advent of cryptocurrencies is not just a monetary revolution, it’s also a cultural revolution.”

Boyart is well known in the cryptosphere thanks to a graffiti mural he painted that included a QR code connected to his Bitcoin wallet so people could make donations to him. His initiative reportedly earned him USD 1,000 from donors.

Other artists attending the event include Andy Bauch, Coin Artist, Nanu Berks, Yom de Saint Phalle, Ilies Issiakhem, Josephine Bellini, Yosh, Mark Bern, Choq and Youl.

The event is scheduled from 28 September to 5 October 2018 and is open to the public.
