About the event

If you’ve been paying attention to technology news in the past 6 months you’ll know that blockchain technology is having a profound impact on our world and our future.

Art is not excluded from this change. Why is this technology of relevance to the art world, and how could it impact you as an artist, art lover, collector, or institution?

Join Blaine Campbell, Hussein Hallak, and Mohamed Somani for an informative session on these topics and specifically how the technology is being developed within Mobil Art School’s collaborative art making platform called Arpp. Participants in this workshop will learn:

  • How art becomes decentralized through the use of blockchain technology
  • How artists are finding new ways to control their art and how the world sees and interacts with it, and why it’s worth considering in your own practice
  • How an app can become a democratized way for artists to collaborate and show art using the blockchain, supplementing traditional art institutions
  • And much more!

This event will be hosted in person at Richmond Art Gallery with a limited audience.
