The Hermitage will host an exhibition of NFT art

The State Hermitage is preparing to host an exhibition of digital art in the NFT format.

According to the statement, the show will take place in 2021, and "the project will become the first exhibition research in the field of art of NFT-tokens in Russia and their use in the artistic field."

In addition, museum representatives write:

NFT is a new form of blockchain technology for assigning rights to a work of art, which allows you to establish unambiguous control over copyright and ownership rights.

The Hermitage has not yet clarified whether they plan to sell non-fungible tokens within the framework of the exhibition.
