ART FOR EVERYONE, ANYWHERE, ALL THE TIME!
Eleonora and Seth sit down and talk about the age of art we're in, where we can show art anywhere at any time, and how the coming digital advancements open this up wider for the experience of art.
We had some technical difficulties, around 10:45. We started the conversation one week and finished it the next.
To introduce Eleonora in more depth here is her bio from her website https://breezyart.io/
Eleonora Brizi is an art curator based in New York, Rome and Beijing. She graduated and specialized in contemporary Chinese art. In 2018 she started her new path dedicated to “art and technology” in New York. Before landing in the world of art and tech, she spent six years in Beijing, China, where she worked for four years as assistant to artist Ai Weiwei and two years as assistant and representative in China under the curator Jerome Sans. In New York, she studied blockchain technology and its application to art, especially its use in certifying and monetizing digital art pieces. She looked to open the discussion on attributing a “new” value to art and spreading the doors to a new form of collecting. As an art curator and gallerist, she deals with and promotes digital art. These works are created through different means: from Artificial Intelligence and machine learning, to raw code, to virtual reality, to painted canvases and ink papers animated on the computer. She combines her knowledge of the art world with the need – of the art itself – of speaking the language of the time. The current dialogue is digital and technical. In China she started her career as an art curator. Working on independent projects gave her the chance of spending time cultivating her favorite activity: relationships with artists. Once in New York she became very active in the flourishing crypto creative community, promoting and participating in many projects. She co-curated and published The Rarest Book; a book about Rare Pepe, the first ever project of digital art on the blockchain; she organized an art auction of digital art during the Rare Art Festival as well as conferences and panels on art and artificial intelligence and art on the blockchain. She then started the adventure of her “Breezy”.
