Gucci Unveils NFT Crypto Art To Celebrate The House’s 100-Year Legacy

Gucci is taking its digital presence one step further with the launch of Art Space and its first online exhibit and auction, ‘The Next 100 Years of Gucci’. Joining hands with SuperRare, a NFT art digital market, the immersive exhibition displays artworks from 28 artists to reflect upon the House’s rich heritage and envision its future.

As part of the virtual venture, Gucci and SuperRare will host three Twitter Spaces conversations, where artist-philosopher-writer Rowynn Dumont will speak to participating artists about creating and collecting art today. These open conversations will also be recorded and available later as episodes of the Gucci Podcast, which is accessible on all major podcast streaming platforms.
