Art exhibitions are an integral space for galleries, visionaries, artists, and collectors to interact with each other. A venue to discover new trends, learn from industry leaders, get inspired by the works of other artists, and, most important, expand their network.
NFTs were no exception. Even before the topic reached mainstream audiences, there were small events for like-minded people, but as the community grew, the events became more extensive. Now NFT exhibitions and conferences gather thousands of visitors, take place worldwide, host prominent industry leaders as speakers, and drive the development of the industry forward.
The Digital Basel team selected a list of the most interesting NFT art events of 2023 and 2024, which every connoisseur of contemporary art and NFT should visit.

BASEL CONVERSATIONS | Basel, Switzerland
June 17, 2023
As blockchain-based products and services become more present in everyday life, end-users, businesses, and organizations start asking questions to uncover potential risks and flaws. The same happens in the art world, as the appearance of NFT shook the artists' community and made them feel vulnerable despite claims of being a technology that empowers creators and increases art market transparency.
Thus, Art Basel decided to gather artists and Web 3.0 entrepreneurs to discuss several important topics that may be an issue for art institutions, artists, and collectors, including:
NFT ownership: what buyers get from the transaction;
NFT authenticity and copyrights;
How Blockchain impacts transaction;
How NFTs benefit galleries, artists, and collectors.
