Annka Kultys Gallery’s contribution to LaCollection’s in-person exhibition at Frieze New York was mentioned in David Graver’s article for Cool Hunting.
LA COLLECTION’S IMMERSIVE, IN-PERSON EGONSCHIELE NFT EXHIBITIOB FOR FRIEZE NYC
AN INTROSPECTIVE POP-UP THAT WILL ALLOW VIENNA’S LEOPOLD MUSEUM TO ACQUIRE A REDISCOVERED SCHIELE MASTERPIECE
‘Upon arrival, guests step into a space cast in moody, low light and a Schiele quote illuminated on the wall explains it: “I paint the light that emanates from all bodies.” As such, the light source in the exhibit is that of each individual digital artwork glowing from its frame. Though some of the NFTs are static, others—including two Schiele masterpieces—are kinetic. Captured by a video producer, they move into close detail and reveal unexpected color and texture (including Schiele’s own fingerprints). On one recessed wall hangs an NFT of the rediscovered piece, which the artist painted when he was 16. A projection on another wall features a revolving display of captivating digital artworks from contemporary artists represented by the Annka Kultys Gallery.’
