Inviting ever-diverse points of view to reimagine the codes of the House, the cryptoart gallery infinitely extends the possibilities of where the narrative can go.
Continuing Gucci’s exploration of the art world, as well as its own journey through the uncharted territory of the metaverse, the experimental force of the House inaugurates Vault Art Space. Created through a partnership between Gucci and the digital art marketplace SuperRare, the online gallery is a place to view the forward-thinking visions of contemporary artists, as well as buy their artworks with cryptocurrencies.
For the first exhibition entitled ‘The Next 100 Years,’ Vault continues to conjure up a temporal flux by calling upon 28 handpicked artists to reflect upon the House’s century of heritage and envision what comes next. From cryptoart natives to more traditional creators experimenting with digital artforms and from past Gucci collaborators to emerging talents, the initial slate of artists includes Alanna Vanacore, Alex Trochut, Alexis Christodoulou, Aliendope, ALIENQUEEN, Aliina Kauranne, anchenillustration, Antoni Tudisco, Dārta Katrīna, diberkato, Drew Young, eBoy, Ignasi Monreal, Ignorance1, Jordan Schiffer, Kris Andrew Small, loudsqueak, Merijn Hos & Jurriaan Hos, Paulina Almira, Pet Liger, Pindar Van Arman, SamJ, Sasha Katz, Sheidlina, Tim Maxwell, trs.mnz, Tyler Spangler, VEXX, and YEAHYEAHCHLOE.
Unbound by physical walls, the space presents a regular rotation of digital artworks, each a collectible fragment of the kaleidoscopic heritage of the House. Vault Art Space’s first exhibition will be showcased and auctioned off directly on Vault’s website in three drops, the first beginning June 23 and concluding July 1.
