Singapore - INSTINC is pleased to present "Probably Nothing". It was what the world thought NFT mania was. Also what artists thought they might make from going digital, and what collectors thought they might gain from buying art they can admire on their own screens.
2022 has shown that NFT art is very much something, and is here to stay for now. We celebrate the extension of the definition and vision of art with this fun exhibition of contemporary fine artists who are expanding their practices through this NFT show. As the novelty and hype of NFTs continues to settle, "Probably Nothing" offers a less frenzied space for the participating artists to meditate upon the ongoing conversations about the tech landscapes of the arts ecology, to playfully probe their own practices for new possibilities of presentation/being, to continue questioning how value and creativity is communicated through new market modalities.
Collections are minted on various blockchains, and explore the various relationships artists have - having their existing skill sets dialogue with new platforms for transaction and presentation; working with their peers to collaborate artistically in a Zoom-mediated world; navigating evolving models of patronage with their collectors who are more familiar with collecting their work in the brick and mortar world.
