Dubai Mall’s Infinity des Lumiѐres is hosting the first-ever immersive NFT art exhibition based on a Graphic Novel Franchise. The exhibition at the region’s largest immersive digital art centre, taking place on 27 April, is a portal between the physical world and the metaverse. And the Ethereum-powered artwork from the beyond-dystopian metaverse of the "It Remains" franchise is undoubtedly the peak of digital art, meaningful and thought-provoking storytelling, blockchain tech and sustainable living.
During the day, the exhibition will be open to the public and is guaranteed to be an equally memorable experience for anyone interested in contemporary art, technology or the NFT phenomenon that’s reshaping countless industries. Those interested in the creation and perception of value will also find it of interest.
The evening sees the special main event, the official launch of the “It Remains” franchise, which will culminate with the reveal of an ultra-limited “Legendary” collection. The first NFT project launch of its kind is bringing together a host of entrepreneurs, collectors, investors and admirers native to the NFT space. The event is providing the professionals, who are united by the vision to bring value and innovation to the world, with a platform to network with fellow-minded patrons of the arts and technology.
“It Remains” unites an impressive and diverse group of professionals. And they all have unique and decades-long experiences in storytelling, brand building and business start-up, enabling them to contribute to the life of this powerful franchise. One of the talents giving their time to realise this project and bring “It Remains” to the world includes the VP of Viacom for Eastern Europe and a long-time Pixar Art Director behind masterpieces like “Finding Nemo,” “Wall-E” and “The Incredibles.” There’s also the original author of the narrative and the incredible artists involved.
Directly addressing some of the most burning issues of contemporary humanity, “It Remains” is an unsettling, unforgettable and one-of-a-kind window into the world of discarded objects, plastic and ultimately, people. With a vision as ambitious and huge as the questions it compels us to ask, “It Remains” demands us to see ourselves from the sidelines and the relative importance of material possessions we’ve come to expect.
Infinity des Lumières is an impressive 2,700 sq. metre venue with 130 projectors and 58 speakers. And it’s the perfect space for audiences of all ages, diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds, varying appreciations for art and assorted interests to meet and connect through shared experiences.
