European Museum to Exhibit NFTs


France’s national museum of modern art in Centre Pompidou in Paris plans to host an exhibition to showcase the relationship between art and blockchain, bringing the NFTs to the centre of the Parisian art scene.

The February 10 exhibition will feature NFTs from CryptoPunks and Autoglyphs projects and works by 12 other digital artists. CryptoPunks is an NFT collection minted on the Ethereum blockchain. Each of the 10,000 “punks” is a 24×24-pixel image, one of crypto’s most dominant and enduringly popular profile pictures, a new form of asset tokenization, the organisers said.

Autoglyphs, on the other hand, are much rarer. The Ethereum-based generative art project from Larva Labs, the creators of CryptoPunks, only has 512 NFTs. The cheapest listed Autoglyph token is worth 249 ETH, or over $377,000.

It is the first time that NFTs have been accepted into the Centre Pompidou's collection, which includes masterpieces by Vassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, and Frida Kahlo. Centre Pompidou is the largest modern art museum in Europe.
