Pace Gallery has announced its first NFT platform, Pace Verso, ahead of its next booth at Art Basel in Miami.
Pace Verso was developed as a way for the gallery to continue its history of supporting artists who push the boundaries and their projects in the fields of art and technology. Pace President and CEO Marc Glimcher said in a statement:
âWe became interested in creating a dedicated NFT platform for Pace when our artists expressed their curiosity about creating NFTs and after supporting their first NFT projects with other platforms. Our philosophy is to create the tools our artists need, and Pace Verso is now a central part of our NFT programming. In addition to offering artists the ability to show and sell NFTs on our own Pace Verso platform, we will continue to support stand-alone NFT projects with other partners “
To kick off, digital art pioneer, Lucas Samaras will present a second NFT sequel from his X Y Z series on November 22. To coincide with Art Basel, Pace Verso will then release a number of alluring works by Glenn Kaino, as well as the famous Dutch art collective DRIFT, who collaborated with another Dutch DJ turned digital art pioneer, Don Diablo. .
Pace Verso was made in collaboration with Palm Studio NFT on the Palm Network – a new NFT-optimized blockchain network for culture and creativity, built by and for the open Ethereum ecosystem.
Elsewhere, Chad Knight is a digital artist whose work lives between mythology and science fiction.
