Tomorrow, SuperRare will debut the virtual exhibition of NFT artworks, “Invisible Cities,” inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel of the same name. Live through April 30, the exhibition curated by An Rong and Elisabeth Johs will feature NFTs depicting sci-fi urban environments and utopian cityscapes, which will be available for sale through the Ethereum blockchain platform at the launch of the show.
Viewers of the virtual exhibition are invited to immerse themselves in cyberspace as they examine the relationship between concepts of visible and invisible through the work of 10 international artists. Considering the dreamlike state between reality and imagination, viewers can envision themselves as residents of these intangible places as they explore the fantastical creations that only exist on screen.
“Calvino’s seminal text is a perfect framework for today’s NFT art market, remaining a tour de force of the imagination,” said the curators, Rong and Johs. “The mystery behind the future of NFTs and their place in the world needs a response with imagination. The mystery behind imagination is a forever conundrum.”
Featured works include Karisman’s floating structure in the sky titled Rejuvenation, Gutty Kreum’s animated work Nara, evocative of a street in Japan, and Nate Mohler’s abstracted city views Amsterdam and Paris. Other artists whose work is on view include Fabio Giampietro, Annibale Siconolfi, Mari.k, KLDPXL, Dangiuz, JENISU, and Elise Swopes.
