For The Culture Exhibited at NFT Factory Paris

FOR THE CULTURE, a collaborative exhibition between Punk6529, Artpoint and the NFT Factory.

This vibrant and buzzing exhibition is a celebration of the strength of the Web3 community, with all its inside jokes, specific terminologies, and—of course—memes. We invite you to get lost in our universe, a feast for the eyes and a sensory explosion, where creativity reigns free and Web3 internet subculture marries perfectly with fine digital art. This variegated and diverse exhibition is above all an example of the magic that can be made when artists, gallerists and collectors work together hand-in-hand to further a new age of the internet and art market—all with a common mission. All FOR THE CULTURE.

The “Bull Market” is dead … long live the Bear Market !

Indeed, the current crypto market is slow, very slow. Since April 23, 2023, the main marketplaces of NFT, such as, have recorded historically low transaction volumes. And it’s hard to say how long it will last…
This affects the crypto art market and endangers many artists, who are preparing to face difficult times. A joke circulates in the community: if everything collapses, we will end up working at McDonalds… The symbol of this joke is a strong acronym, “NGMI” ( Not Gonna Make It, it will not do it ), opposite “WGMI” ( We Gonna Make It, we will get there ).

100% created by artificial intelligence – or not

NFT Factory Paris

March 2 2023 – March 25 2023

The recent democratization of creation aid tools using artificial intelligence leads to fascinating debates on the definition of art and artistic approach, on the relationship between humans and the machine and on the right to literary and artistic property. This exhibition illustrates these different debates and shows how artists take ownership of this new tool to express their art.

La Trahison de l’IA (The Treachery of Ai)

Ce n’est pas l’artiste. Pas la voix. Ceci n’est pas une pipe. L’artiste a-t-il créé? Est-ce de l’art?

This is not the artist. Not the voice. This is not a pipe. Did the artist create? Is it art?

Description and technique.

The NFTs are invading Beaubourg

NFT Factory Paris

April 5 2023

NFT CryptoArt was acquired by Centre Pompidou France’s premier museum of modern art. The official name was “The NFTs are invading Beaubourg

As part of this acquisition the Pompidou move the art pieces into a wallet, which allowed an opportunity to “donate” more art into the collection (or at least the wallet). Dan Polko a collector of Deep Fake Max (Artificial Artist) by Bård sent it into the wallet, which made it part of the unofficial Pompidou collection.

On April 5th the NFT Factory held a special showing and event to commemorate the hack. It was covered by the French press.

L’immaginario Hackatao in un’esposizione che sublima il passaggio dal piano fisico a quello digitale della Cryptoart.
“Di fronte all’avanzata galoppante dell’omologazione che spiana tutto, gli Hackatao rivendicano la loro individualità. E vogliono la distruzione del Moloch, del Leviatano. Sono dei veri ribelli: non a caso si definiscono hacker del tao, cioè scardinatori dell’universo”
. Così ha definito l’ambasciatore Umberto Vattani il dittico artistico formato da Sergio Scalet e Nadia Squarci, alla presentazione della loro personale al Circolo del Ministero degli Affari Esteri.

The Edicurial Collection

Bård Ionson’s ‘Global Reality’ is an immersive experience in film. By utilizing virtual reality software techniques to distort a scene from the movie ‘Independence Day’ through AI, Ionson conveys his unifying and global message through hypnotic visuals. This artwork abstracts notions of ‘money, power and technology,’ that – for better or for worse – conceived of it, and instead focuses on purifying our collective senses to love.
