K21 is a collection of firsts: the first NFTs minted by established and emerging art world luminaries and the first iterations of trailblazing experiments in digital art. The collection has been assembled by an anonymous team of cryptoart originators and curators with over 50 years of collective experience leading contemporary art and digital programs at some of the most renowned institutions in the world.
The artists and artworks have been selected to test the limits of NFTs as a medium and their potential for impact. The artworks will be unveiled over the coming weeks following the launch.
Participating artists: Alex Mordvintsev, COOL 3D WORLD, David OReilly, Filip Hodas, Hank Willis Thomas & the Wide Awakes, Jenna Sutela, Liam Gillick, Pak, Paul Chan, Precious Okoyomon, Rachel Rose, Raoul Marks, Rebecca Allen, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Simon Denny, Suzanne Treister, Terrell Villiers, +4 TBA. As artists complete their respective works, Kanon will be assisting the artists in minting the artworks as NFTs, and will transfer the NFT tokens into the K21 Collection Safe.
