This year’s show encourages visitors to join the virtual community and co-create their own generative AI and NFT art.

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really understand the whole metaverse, but if there’s one thing that this year’s Art Basel, Art Central and Affordable Art Fair alluded to, it’s that digital art will be big. Which is just as well, because in October, the Digital Art Fair Xperience Hong Kong 2022 will arrive in all its local glory.

Scheduled to take place in a 20,000 square foot venue in Central, Digital Art Fair‘s Xperience show will push the boundaries of what we currently call art. Visitors will be able to bask in a host of digital works by local and international artists and creators, using interactive Web 3.0 technologies including blockchain, virtual reality and the metaverse.

While details of the event are still being worked out, it is rumored that the 2022 show will feature London-based Chinese artist Jacky Tsai, the world’s foremost Chinese contemporary pop artist. Renowned for his interaction between Chinese and Western cultures, Tsai’s most notable works include his floral skull emblem for British fashion designer Alexander McQueen and Parody of Jay’s Music, commissioned by the famous Mandopop singer himself.

The event will be supported by partners Goldman Sachs and LG Electronics Hong Kong (LG). Thus, visitors can transport themselves to the metaverse with the world’s most award-winning line of OLED TVs, developed by LG.

“We see that digital art has become increasingly popular with young audiences, many of whom are interested in creating their own NFTs. Through this public art installation, we hope to push boundaries and connect art lovers and digital artists, pursuing our vision of advancing art and culture through technology,” said Gillian Howard, Founder of Digital Art Fair and Director of Global Fair.
