A review of Christie's Art + Tech Summit: Exploring Blockchain
which took place on Tuesday in London:
JJ Charlesworth is the same guy who wrote an article in ArtReview not so
long ago about Maecenas, the blockchain-based forum for selling little
bits of artwork online, which claims to 'democratise' the art market.
He's obviously interested in the intersection between art markets, new
technology, and the profit motive: 'But equally obvious in the push for
a more trustworthy art market is the keen desire to make lots of money
out of it. Inevitably, cryptocurrency approaches to financialising the
art market loomed large.'
Interesting and infuriating in just about equal measure.
