Block Party

Encountering NFTs in the Middle East

Dubai, 7–29 March 2022

Block Party presents the world’s leading NFT art experimentalists for a special edition of works to be showcased for the first time in Dubai. Curated by Daria Borisova and hosted by Christie’s, this exhibition brings together leading practitioners of the NFT art movement for a unique celebration at Christie’s Dubai in the Dubai International Financial Centre during the city’s preeminent art fair.

This exhibition features a curated selection of works by Justin Aversano, José Delbo, Trevor Jones, Osinachi, Rewind Collective, Nicole Ruggiero and Sarah Zucker.

With the rise and spectacular market ascendency of NFTs entering the pantheon of the blue-chip art world, Block Party attempts to reconstruct and provide an overview of other important art practitioners involved in the recent art history of 2020 through 2022—a time marked by the rise and mainstream adoption of NFTs.
