The Tezos blockchain ecosystem has been a fixture of the Art Basel Miami scene since December 2021, when Mario Klingemann’s installation ‘Humans + Machines: NFTs and the Ever-Evolving World of Art’ took pride of place at the fair.

This year, the Art Vertical team at Trilitech – a London hub of the Tezos ecosystem – is working with Refraction – the artist-owned web3 curatorial/culture leaders – to organise a celebration and showcase of the full range of successes across the art community, alongside additional curatorial partners, as well as a takeover of South Beach, marking a first for the ecosystem.

In Nand Nagri, Delhi, India an art exhibition created by women residents is shining a light on the often overlooked dialogue surrounding air Pollution. ‘Hawa Mein Baat’ stands out for its unique approach to raising awareness, employing waste materials and artistic expression to convey a powerful message.

Led by artists Niroj Satpathy and Moumika Basak, around 20 women from Nand Nagri embarked on a journey of creativity and advocacy. Through workshops and collaborative efforts, they transformed cloth, ropes, and threads into artworks, addressing the pressing issue of air pollution, a conversation from which they are frequently excluded due to their roles in the informal economy.

The Synergetic Spirit of Buffalo’s Black Arts Community

As a curator, writer, and artist, my work is grounded in storytelling. Contextualizing the work of artists past and present for broad audiences is an incredible responsibility; arts administrators play a significant role in determining whose stories are preserved in history and how they are remembered. But what about the stories that aren’t told? How can narratives historically excluded from the canon be elevated and recognized for their enduring influence?

The resolve of the Black Arts Movement to address these questions led to the cultivation of spaces for artists to express themselves freely and for folks to see themselves reflected in art. Major cities like Chicago, New York, and Oakland immediately come to mind when considering the connection between art and self-determination. However, the continuum of Black artists in Buffalo, New York, has fostered community spaces and practices for decades that center accessibility and the inextricable link between art and life.
