APENFT Foundation & LiveArt Announce Exhibition in Cryptovoxels & Auction on LiveArtX

The exhibition will bring together more than 20 artists – both emerging and established – who are united by their use of digital media to explore visions of alternative realities in the metaverse.


“Second Life,” a rare exhibition of digital art presented in the Cryptovoxel metaverse, combines the biggest names in Cryptoart—Beeple, Pak, Fewocious, and Bored Apes—with the Art Dream Fund’s first group of emerging artists selected for the quality of their work. The exhibition opens today at the APENFT ART MUSEUM in Cryptovoxels.

“As NFTs open up new opportunities for everyone to create and interact with art,” explains Sydney Xiong, Art Director of APENFT Foundation, “we recognise and strongly believe in the importance of supporting young and emerging talents with new ideas to get a well-deserved debut in the art world.”

The exhibition will bring together more than 20 artists – both emerging and established – who are united by their use of digital media to explore visions of alternative realities in the metaverse. The more than 50 NFTs feature the work of artists alongside twelve winners of the Art Dream Fund's inaugural open call, which were announced at the end of 2021. Select works will be available for purchase on LiveArtX, the curated NFT marketplace established by a team of art market insiders and tech innovators.

“Second Life” was co-curated by Sydney Xiong, Director of APENFT Foundation, and Marisa Kayyem Chief Curator of LiveArt. The winners of the Art Dream Fund's inaugural open call worked with the LiveArt team to develop and mint their works in the LiveArtX Creator Hub. The works will be offered in a series of four-day online auctions on LiveArtX’s NFT marketplace, which provides collectors access to a curated marketplace of high-quality works of digital art. Catering to both the physical and digital art worlds, LiveArtX accepts cryptocurrency and credit card payments.

Marisa Kayyem Chief Curator of LiveArt, commented, “LiveArt is the ultimate bridge between the physical and digital art worlds – blending technology, innovation and deep knowledge of the art market – and we are thrilled to partner with APENFT and bring this exciting group of works to the market. The tools we developed support collaboration - users can mint, trade, and collect in a community-first environment. And it’s a particularly exciting moment for LiveArtX, as all participants in the upcoming auction gain access to our ecosystem, including token incentives, and of course, a great selection of curated art.”

“APENFT and LiveArt share the same vision of bridging traditional art and the NFT world. We’re also excited to share our finest and most diverse collections, alongside works of “Second Life” open call winners, to the entire community through curated online exhibitions in the metaverse.” said Sydney Xiong, Art Director of APENFT Foundation.
