1-10 of September, 2017 the State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia will host the world’s first CryptoArt, an exhibition project organized by Rudanovsky Foundation. The Foundation will present a qualitatively new platform for art communication based on the works of the contemporary artist Svetlana Smirnova.
In the upcoming exposition, each picture is provided with an open digital VerisArt certificate, based on Blockchain technology. The very important factor of this innovation consists in truly grandiose prospects for open and transparent relations among museums, auction houses, galleries, collectors, art historians and researchers.
The uniqueness of this project is encapsulated in a revolutionary level of access to previously restricted data. With Blockchain it is impossible to destroy or falsify the primary detailed information about works of art, provenance and history of displacement. This provides the basis for true security and transparency. Perhaps the exhibition of Svetlana Smirnova will be the first real example of reaching a brand-new level of trusted interaction in the global art community.
