NFTs have well and truly gone mainstream, and now you’re even able to visit an actual gallery devoted to them in New York! Superchief Gallery’s new NYC space is billing itself as the first gallery dedicated solely to NFTs, all exhibited on high resolution screens. It’s inaugural show, Season One Starter Pack, runs until May 25.

Christie’s Once Gave Out Free NFTs 

Apparently, Christie’s gave out NFTs for free – via SuperRare – at its first annual Art+Tech Summit in 2018. The NFTs comprise digital artworks by Robbie Barrat which were literally put into gift bags. Now they are reselling for as much as $100,000, though most were not claimed. If they are not found, then many of the artworks will be available to own, but not to view, so there is a mad search for those golden NFTs! 

FASHION

The robotic cat has been given a green makeover to help the brand present its sustainable initiatives in what it describes as “fun and understandable ways.” #besustainablebutmakeitcute

Anyone who’s anyone is cashing in on NFTs and now TIME Magazine is dipping its toe in the crypto art world too. The magazine has just auctioned 3 NFTs inspired by three of its past covers via the SuperRare platform. Perhaps we’ll be reading all our future magazines as NFTs…?!
