Held from 30 September to 17 October 2021, Digital Art Fair Asia 2021 makes its debut as the first-ever physical and virtual art fair in Hong Kong featuring a 360-degree immersive art experience and world-class NFT digital art. Occupying a 20,000 square-foot- indoor venue in the heart of Central, the 18-day art fair features over 40 international and local artists and over 200 digital and NFT artworks.
With an impressive lineup of international contemporary artists ranging from Refik Anadol to King of Kowloon to Krista Kim, supported by leading institutions from various sectors, DAFA is setting a new standard of international art fairs, displaying art in a way that has never been done before.
Spanning two floors, the fair is split into five distinct zones. On the ground floor, the Immerse Zone invites visitors to explore the artworks of Turkish-American new media artist Refik Anadol and contemporary artist Krista Kim through innovative technologies in a curated Immersive Room; while the Pioneer Zone showcases a number of artists who are spearheading the NFT art movement, ranging from those in new media art to photography and urban art.
Up on the first floor, the Prestige Zone presents a series of artwork that integrate AR (augmented reality) effects, bringing 2D artworks to 3D through sophisticated image recognition and advanced mapping technology. The Virtual Zone allows visitors to walk through the first-ever virtual museum presented by dslcollection.
In addition to a wide range of extraordinary NFT art and new media art displayed at the fair, there is also an Inspire Zone in which experts and leaders across different art and technology industries will be delivering insightful seminars and webinars. Key speakers from the extensive programme of talks include co-founder of dslcollection Sylvian Lévy, founder of Run The Chain John Keh, founder of VR-All-Art Vitomir Jevremovic, and co-founder of Refinable Nicholas Chan.
