Following their sold-out inaugural event in 2020, Crypto-Art curators, Future Art return to Sydney for a one-night-only collaborative exhibition in partnership with Yahoo and Samsung Electronics to launch VIVID SYDNEY 2022 on Friday, 27 May 2022 from 7pm. Tickets are now on sale.
Future Art is Vivid brings the exploding digital art scene to the main stage at Home The Venue in Darling Harbour. This is your unique opportunity to discover artworks from the world's biggest crypto-artists, including an exclusive series of collectible NFT art drops that will occur during the evening.
Future Art is the brainchild of Sydney-based crypto art curator Sats Moon in collaboration with Potbelleez Producer and DJ Dave Goode, who are pioneers of the Australian digital art scene. This immersive NFT Crypto-Art event fuses large scale HD projections with live music, DJs, and Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality lounges and cocktail bars. The stellar live music line-up includes Black Angus from Sneaky Sound System, Dave Goode from Future Art, Ciaran Gribbin formerly of INXS, Ilan Kidron from The Potbelleez and more.
Future Art is Vivid has been curated as a multi-sensory journey to remodel your experience of contemporary art. Guests can view artworks via the Samsung TVs and can interact with the artworks directly through smart devices, to discover the talents of artists including The Sarah Show (USA), Coldie (USA), EM! (Japan), Giant Swan (Australia), Marc-O-Matic (Australia), and Sydney's own Robson and Serwah Attafuah, along with collectible NFT art from Bored Ape Yacht Club and CryptoPunks.
Guests will also be treated to the Australian premiere of the international award-winning virtual reality experience, 'Tree'. This global phenomenon immerses viewers into the lifetime of a tree, from a seedling to a full-grown rainforest.
"Partnering with VIVID SYDNEY 2022 made perfect sense for us, we launched Australia's first ever digital art exhibition in 2021 which was based on the creative and innovative VIVID concept. We are thrilled to be involved with their opening night and look forward to showcasing these incredible artists and give consumers the opportunity to dive into the immersive world of crypto art," says, Sats Moon.
Media and tech powerhouse Yahoo is supporting the event, diving deep into the stories behind headline artists and using immersive technology to bring their artworks to life in augmented reality.
