Galloire will be releasing the second wave of art in the <I’M NOT A ROBOT> exhibition — all pieces will be NFTs from the celebrated international artists featured in the exhibition. AI artist Anne Spalter (also a curator at renowned NFT platform Artblocks) is in Dubai from New York and will talk about her practice, how NFTs are shaping the creative space and her experience as an artist who is on the forefront of the NFT space. This exclusive event is open to both seasoned NFT collectors as well as anyone who is curious wants to learn about NFTs.
The first 100 attendees will also receive POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol), which will have future use and value. Galloire will be holding regular events both for traditional collectors and those in the crypto art space looking to hear from world-class artists and broaden their knowledge in the evolving art world.
Date: 28th February. Time: 7:00 pm. Location: Galloire, City Walk, Dubai
Digital mixed-media artist Anne Spalter is an academic pioneer who founded the original digital fine arts courses at Brown University and The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in the 1990s and authored the internationally taught textbook, The Computer in the Visual Arts (Addison-Wesley, 1999). Her artistic process combines a consistent set of personal symbols with a hybrid arsenal of traditional mark-making methods and innovative digital tools. A new body of work, further developed at a recent residency at MASS MoCA, combines artificial intelligence algorithms with oil paint and pastels.
Spalter is also noted for her large-scale public projects. MTA Arts commissioned Spalter to create a 52-screen digital art installation, New York Dreaming, which remained on view in one of its most crowded commuter hubs (Fulton Center) for just under a year. Spalter’s 2019 large-scale projects included a 47,000 square foot LED video work on the Hong Kong harbor.
Spalter’s work is in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, UK); the Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo, NY); the Rhode Island School of Design Museum (Providence, RI); The Museum of CryptoArt, and others. Alongside her studio practice, Spalter continues to lecture on digital art practice and theory.
