Art Calls Boomer Gallery: Art For Real ll

Boomer Gallery Whitechapel, England, United Kingdom

Boomer Gallery

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: July 2, 2022 – What is art? Where is it heading? Is art still in the hands of artists and art dealers or it has become a tool for the crypto speculators?

The world is changing, everything becomes more virtual including art and in the process a lot of speculators are trying to twist things in their own interest like in the case of NFT. The crypto speculators are trying to make this the new “COOL” but what is so cool about it?

As for us- galleries, artists, collectors… should we let hundreds of years of artistic refinement in the hands of the crypto speculators that don’t even know the difference between renaissance and contemporary?

What about the painters, photographers, print makers, sculptors, performers and all the other artists who create real work, work that we can touch, smell, feel… should we give up on them for the sake of a speculative game? No thanks!!!

NFT should be embraced as a new medium/tool like we always did along the way with a lot of other things but it shouldn’t be allowed to take over!

If it does take over then an entire generation of artists and their works will vanish in thin air making way for the crypto speculators and their pyramid.

Should we allow this to happen on our watch? The purpose of this exhibition is to create a dialogue between artists, artworks and the audience and to demonstrate that any form of art in any style can be successful.

We had a lot of enquires from foreign artists to exhibit with us but sometimes shipping the work to London in time might be a bit difficult in this challenging period, that’s why we’ve come up with an alternative! If you are one of the accepted artist and you find it hard to ship your work to us, you can send us photos of your work and we can print and frame it for you… see details
