ENTER Art Fair 2021 has announced its plans to include non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in its upcoming event.
According to the announcement, ENTER Art Fair has formed collaborations with Tacans to launch SpaceSeven, the first Nordic marketplace for NFT art. This partnership will reportedly help include NFT pieces in Scandinavia’s most important international art event. Tacans is a software development agency based in Swaziland.
Commenting on the news, Julie Alf, creator, and director of the ENTER Art Fair explained:
“If there is no change, there is no art. Blockchain is not just a technology, and it is a way for art to do what art does – hold up a mirror to society.”
ENTER welcomes everybody to discover, experience, and acquire some of the best contemporary art, not only from the Nordic region but also from around the world. ENTER Art Fair was created to develop a series and continuously relevant and commercial platform for the art industry while at the same time providing a progressive space for new artists and experimental art forms.
The ENTER Art Fair is scheduled to run from August 26 to August 29. The event, which will be held at Tunnelfabriken, Copenhagen, will help merge both traditional and digital forms of art. The event welcomes more than 61 galleries and 250 artists who have already been approved by ENTER’s international committee led by Kirsten Eggers. Reportedly, the galleries will select one of the artists they represent to mint one exclusive NFT. These NFTs will then be sold on the SpaceSeven NFT marketplace.
Through this event, ENTER will open incredible opportunities for SpaceSeven by introducing it to new and old players in the industry. SpaceSeven is a multi-blockchain NFT marketplace built on the Concordium blockchain. The marketplace allows artists to mint NFTs, create and sell their masterpieces universally at a fixed price.
The partnerships couldn’t have come at a better time. According to reports, the NFT market has seen tremendous growth recording. NFTs have grown by more than $200 million in markets in the past nine months. Most of this growth was recorded back in February 2021.
