Bahrain RAK art foundation to launch NFT MENA Exhibition

Bahrain RAK Art Foundation and Dar Alfann Gallery have entered into a joint venture to create NFT MENA Exhibit 2022, a state-of-the-art exhibition that will take place at the Ritz-Carlton Manama from March 16 to 18 2022.

 The NFT exhibition, being held during the F1 weekend in Bahrain, offers a unique and innovative experience.  

 “The exhibition in its first edition will go on to become an annual event. It will provide a platform for much-needed conversations about a decentralized future and the next phases of the Internet, as we begin to consider the blockchain and its many facets and assets and try to come to terms with a new frontier; one that merges the worlds of technology, art, culture and the economy,” said Abdulrahman Almokla, Chairman of Dar Alfann Gallery.  “The main purpose of this event is educational. While these topics are making the front pages and gaining popularity fast, most people are still asking themselves “what are NFTs?” We want to answer this question and show them the possibilities that NFTs can offer. What it could mean for them as artists, investors, business owners, gallerists and so on.” 

NFT MENA Exhibit 2022 is an attempt to propel the web 3.0 narrative, and showcase the cultural relevance of digital artworks and their potential as both intellectual, cultural and investment capital. The exhibited art and the panel of speakers will demonstrate how utilizing the emerging technologies as a creative outlet creates new dynamics in the art world and new opportunities in terms of investment and global markets.

 Alongside some international artists, the Bahrain RAK Art Foundation exhibition will present a curation of artworks by Bahraini artists such as Leena Al Ayoobi, Adnan Al Ahmed and more, and explain step-by-step the process of getting your artwork on the blockchain, in addition to talks, live minting and auctioning, workshops by NFT experts, NFT markets and crypto-exchange representatives, as well as educational sessions for artists and NFT enthusiasts.   

The Bahrain RAK Art Foundation have also partnered with UAE based NFT BAZL, a leading NFT marketplace to bring their expertise to realize this event.  

 The RAK Art Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering artists worldwide by providing opportunities, encouraging cross-cultural collaborations and exchange, and fostering international partnerships. Dar Alfann, based in Bahrain, is a boutique firm that specializes in creating art and artwork that speaks to the traditional heritage of the Arabian Gulf countries.
