Last Friday, March 25, 2022, the WAO Gallery and Cultural Center – We Are One- with the support and collaboration of the Ministry of Women, presented an innovative traveling exhibition of international artists that combines the physical with the digital and introduces the world Crypto and NFTs to the local digital art market, reconfirming Altos de Chavón as the center and leader of the artistic world and cultural innovation.
The exhibition began with a talk by Mr. Carlos Miranda Levy, an expert in Social and Cultural Innovation, about the convergence of art and digital, introducing the crypto world and NFTs to the local art market.
The group show, conceived in collaboration with the Arte Latino group on the occasion of Women’s Month, includes works by the living legends of Latin American Art, Elsa Núñez and Rosa Tavares, from the series “Nuestras Hermanas” and “Expuestas” by Iris Pérez and the provocative photographs by Jazmín Taco, recently invited to the prestigious Documenta quinquennial exhibition in Kassel, among other works. Through their creations, the artists express their emotions, realities, and sensitivities and represent those of everyone, while exploring innovative techniques and ways of doing so.
The physical exhibition features a virtual counterpart to the works, with videos and interviews from the artists and NFTs. A total of 55 works and 12 artists make up the face-to-face and digital exhibition. Collectors can purchase both original works and a unique NFT associated with each work.
WAO Gallery would like to thank all those who attended the evening and the sponsors who have supported the successful completion of the event: Plaza Lama, Eventos y Catering, Bermúdez, El Catador, and Higueral.
The exhibition will be up at the WAO Gallery and Cultural Center in Altos de Chavón until April 20, then it will move to the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo, then Haiti and Europe, adding and varying its works in each place.
The profits generated by the sale of paintings in the exhibition are allocated to projects for the benefit of women by the Women’s Innovation Laboratory Mujer global and social projects of the Patronato Benéfico Oriental (PBO).
