Tezos Foundation, a Swiss non-profit, recently announced a $1.23 million (£1 million) donation to a fund that will be used to gather non-fungible tokens (NFTs) from rising African and Asian artists. Misan Harriman, a prominent photographer and one of the pioneers in the creation and gathering of NFTs, will curate the artists’ work.
According to a source in The Art publication, Harriman, the chair of London’s Southbank Center complex of creative venues, would also focus on acquiring works by artists from locations with little representation in the NFT group.
Harriman stated of his work as curator of the Tezos-Foundation’s so-called permanent art collection:
As the collection’s inaugural curator, I want to ensure that the world hears from the many voices who are creating genuinely amazing works of art. The Tezos Foundation Permanent Collection will honor and assist a new generation of artists who have decided to express themselves using smart contracts.
While detractors of NFTs have expressed worries about cryptocurrency volatility, supporters of the underlying blockchain technology believe NFTs will break down long-standing boundaries in the art industry. While obstacles persist, according to the Tezos Foundation, which is an arm of the Tezos Blockchain, they cannot impede the expanding adoption of NFTs.
Meanwhile Arthur Breitman, a co-founder and early architect of Tezos, just made a comment about how the collection boosts awareness for Web3 artists. “With Misan Harriman’s ability and expertise, we can establish a bespoke destination with the sole purpose of elevating digital artists who turn to Tezos for a sustainable manner of sharing their work with the world.
