Nubia, Metaverses, NFTs and New Realities brings together a set of creations (metaverses and experiences) produced by Catalan artists and collectives and invited to join the NUBIA collective where they receive training, advice and support in the early stages of their projects.
Metaverses proposed by artists/creatives have their own rules, they use gamification, immersion and interaction to invite collectors, visitors and experts to be part of the immensity of NUBIA, experimenting, interacting and socializing in new worlds inhabited by fantastic avatars and works of art, selected by Alejandro Martín, curator of the exhibition and artistic director of IMMENSIVA/Espronceda with the collaboration of Kris Pilcher, director of ATL.NFT, for the American artists section.
