NFT Notes 10: Kelani Nichole on Digital Art in the NFT Space

Season 1, Ep. 742

In this episode, Kelani Nichole, the founder of Transfer Gallery, discusses the history of digital art and how digital artists have interacted with the NFT space. She begins by briefly describing the long history of digital art and her own involvement in the curation of digital art, including at Transfer Gallery. She reflects on how the rapid growth of the NFT market has dramatically increased interest in digital art, both historical and contemporary. She explains how she approaches the curation of digital art in light of NFTs, and how she has helped artists negotiate their relationship to NFTs. She reflects on how NFTs fail to reflect or support some of the concerns about meaning and control that are important to many artists. And she discusses the future of digital art.
