Sydneysiders will get a chance to see what the NFT craze is all about early next year, as the city gets its first-ever exhibition at a Bondi Beach gallery.

The Satellite exhibition will be held at Twenty Twenty Six Gallery from March 9 to April 3, featuring over 40 NFTs from leading Australian and international artists including American graphic designer Beeple,  Scottish artist Trevor Jones, Melbourne-based superhero fan artist BossLogic, Western Sydney artist Serwah Attafua, Australian oil painter Jonathan Zawada, Sydney-based motion designer David Porte Beckefeld, LIŔONA, Melbourne-based digital artist Mikaela Stafford, Chris Golden and David McLeod, Sydney-based 3D artist Jessica Ticchio and more.

Highlights will include Beeple’s Into the ether, Trevor Jones’ Bitcoin Angel and a unique new artwork by BossLogic that will be auctioned off for charity.

NFT sales reached $3.5 billion in the first three quarters of 2021, according to art insurer Hiscox’s online art trade report for 2021.

“Activity has been up and down like a yo-yo but what is undeniable is that they are attracting a new breed of collector/speculator to the market and are here to stay,” wrote Robert Read, head of fine art and private clients at Hiscox.

Organisers said Satellite aims to offer Sydney’s first immersive experience for the NFT curious.

“We want to give people the opportunity to engage with NFT art beyond the screens of personal devices in a new and meaningful way as well as offering a bridge between the digital and physical worlds,” said director Katie Tholo of the REVELO Art Agency, a former Art Gallery of New South Wales staffer.

“By highlighting the transformative power NFTs are having on the creative economy and by showcasing world-leading digital artists who have traditionally been sidelined by the established artworld, we hope to provide a forum to educate and demonstrate the value and power of digital art.”

Corporate partners for the event include Apollo Capital, Carbon Neutral, Coinspot, Illuvium, Mawson Infrastructure Group, QT Hotels and Studio Messa.

The event is free and open to the public. It’ll include a live charity auction, panel talks and networking events.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase works virtually or through QR codes that link to the NFT marketplace Foundation.
