What you need to know about Decentraland's upcoming Metaverse Art Week
Decentraland's third annual Metaverse Art Week is coming soon. And it will take place in Decentraland's art districts from August 24th to August 28th. This time, the theme for the 5-day event is "The World is Made of Code".
Given that, the Metaverse Art Week will showcase the latest technological innovations in digital art and how it helps to push the boundaries of programmatic art. Apart from immersive NFT art displays, live performances and panel talks are some of the activities in store as well.
According to Decentraland, most of the main attractions will be located in Soho Plaza [-75, -2] during Art Week. Upon arrival, you can take an audio tour that guides you through the event's most exciting exhibitions. This includes artwork displays in partnership with Sotheby's, Rarible, OpenSea, SuperRare Labs, Cash Labs Gallery, and more.
If you want to join panel talks or visit other community-designed art galleries, make sure to hop into the adjacent Voltaire Art District. Team Decentraland will post the latest events and exhibitions on a dedicated event page days before the Metaverse Art Week begins.
"Metaverse Art Week 2022 is coming at a pivotal moment for the larger adoption of Web3 technology and decisions about our digital reality. We believe that the future of the internet should be built by decentralized communities who do not seek to profit off of user data, imagination, or creativity," said Sam Hamilton, Decentraland Foundation's Creative Director. "This year's Art Week will be a love letter to what the next generation of artists are doing in the metaverse."
On the whole, Decentraland remains one of the go-to platforms to host exciting events in Web3. Last month, the metaverse giant teamed up with Netflix to bring The Gray Man movie into the metaverse. At the same time, it also attracted American TV network CBS to build a metaverse game on its platform.
