Brought to you by Universe Contemporary x BEYOND THE STREETS, in collaboration with MakersPlace
On April 5 -10, 2021 the traditional contemporary art world collides with the emerging blockchain art community for a group exhibition across the metaverse. META_VS aims to inspire a new generation of collectors and art enthusiasts to explore limitless possibilities and offers the opportunity to purchase rare digital art backed by NFTs and the blockchain.
Join us for a week-long exploration into this new and exciting space. We will explore 3 virtual worlds, immersed in interactive experiences that push the boundaries of imagination. Be the first to see and own exclusively curated collaborations by DABSMYLA + JOY, Mister Cartoon + Alotta Money, Albert Reyes + XCOPY and Winston Smith + COLDIE. Enter completely virtual worlds specifically created for this event. No special equipment needed. Participants can access cryptovoxels via mobile devices or on their desktops on April 5 with the unique event link, http://bit.ly/METAVS21. Art can be purchased via their unique platforms with cryptocurrencies and in USD.
A special collection of artists from BEYOND THE STREETSTM will present new and first-ever NFTs via timed drops on MakersPlace: Join them on the MakersPlace platform starting April 6 for a series of special drops and find them in cryptovoxels for even more new work and activations exclusive to the Meta_VS event.
Highlights of the week include a themed MF DOOM Gallery packed with fan art auctioned to benefit the Doom Family Foundation, a DABSMYLA Secret Garden (find the portal to the other side), a Crypto Art History Timeline, the debut of Mister Cartoon’s digital Grim Sleeper Impala built in collaboration with Alotta Money, a portal to the opening dance party hosted by Bootsy Collins in the virtual world Decentraland, with a special DJ set by Eclectic Method.
