As part of the October 1st, Post War to Present sale at Christie’s, an all-new lineup of art and currency for bidding will be implemented as the auction commences.
The auction house boasts some of the highest-quality artwork spanning the last several decades, representing some of the most contemporary concepts and visual creations throughout the art world; this auction is accompanied by an all-new art form that is breaking its way into the upper-echelon of fine art: The NFT.
Art Blocks, My Curio Cards, and VeeFriends creator Gary Vaynerchuck will be amongst some of the most well-known names in the art world including Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, George Condo, Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, Wayne Thiebaud, and Yoshitomo Nara.
NFTs debuting at auction houses is becoming increasingly common ever since the massive milestone of the Beeple’s “Everydays -- The First 5000 Days” selling for record-breaking $69.3 million. The October 1st auction will be another milestone for the Art Blocks and My Curio Cards NFT collections since they will be the first-ever auctions to be conducted in ETH.
Between My Curio Cards being launching in May 2017 and becoming the first Art NFT project on Ethereum, Art Blocks creating a die-hard community and curating some of the best generative art ever seen, and Gary Vaynerchuk innovating the way we embrace community, imagination, and the union of the two — there is no doubting their placement next to some of history's most influential artists.
