Artnet: Poetry Readings in Decentraland
August 24, 8:00 AM – August 28, 5:00 PM EDT
What does it mean to experience art and poetry in the Metaverse?
Since Artnet was founded in 1989, it has remained at the forefront of critical conversations about art and technology. Now, we invite you to explore the Metaverse with us—to experience art in a totally new way.
Organized with theVERSEverse, an organization advocating for poets working with NFTs,“Art is Happening @ Decentraland” arrives as part of the third edition of Metaverse Art Week. In Artnet’s pavilion, you’ll be able to share a story with international artist Wei Hsinyen under a (virtual) red umbrella for her one-of-a-kind performance piece A Little Umbrella Ⅱ. You can also embrace the world of crypto-native poetry, with readings by critically acclaimed writers including Sasha Stiles, Kalen Iwamoto, Ana Maria Caballero, Elisabeth Sweet, Johnny Dean Mann, Nicole Tallman, Christian Bök, Gisel Florez, and more.
Be sure to check out the following events featuring past Griffin Poetry Prize winner, the legendary Christian Bök.
