PRESS RELEASE: Christie’s Education and AndArt Agency are proud to announce the first comprehensive course on art-focused non-fungible tokens (NFTs), to be held online this April.
From April 26-29, Christie’s Education and AndArt Agency will be offering the first of its kind course on art-focused non-fungible tokens (NFTs), tailored to those interested in deepening their knowledge of the space. Conducted by the leading experts in both the crypto and traditional art worlds, the four-day virtual course will offer a complete overview of NFTs, covering key topics, including: ‘The History of NFTs and How We Got Here’, ‘NFTs in Context: Is it Art?’, ‘What Does the Future Hold?’ and a roundtable discussion with key thought-leaders in the field.
Each session will be presented by a selection of notable specialists, collectors, curators and artists who will deliver valuable insight through a one-hour lecture followed by an open discussion with participants. The course is open to all and would particularly benefit: collectors who are eager to begin their NFT collections, galleries seeking to explore the advantages of NFTs to enhance their business, artists looking to join a platform, and individuals looking to gain a professional understanding of the sector.
Presenters include (in alphabetical order): Jason Bailey, Colborn Bell, Bernadine Brocker-Wider, Fanny Lakoubay, Micol (VerticalCrypto Art), Elliot Safra, Qinwen Wang, Thomas Webb, Zack Yanger and others to be announced soon.
In addition to the above, a Mandarin-language course will be announced in the coming weeks.
Elliot Safra, Partner at AndArt Agency comments: “Continuing AndArt Agency’s focus of bringing an understanding of crypto-art and NFTs to a wider audience, we are extremely proud to have put together a course taught by key participants in the field. We hope that this course will engage the traditional art world into exploring the deeper potentials of this technology.”
