NFT Guide to Art Basel Miami 2021

Art Basel is a collection of leading shows in Basel, Hong Kong, and Miami. During Art Basel Miami leading galleries from five continents showcase significant works by trailblazers and emerging stars of contemporary art. This mainstay event is highly attended by enthusiasts from all over the globe. Often called the “Olympics of the art world,” tens of thousands of people flock to Miami to join and appreciate the art and cultural Zeitgeist.

This year, Art Basel will take place in Miami Beach, which is younger, richer, and techier. Naturally, this means NFTs will play a big role. While celebrities and traditional visual arts used to take center stage, there’s now more hype around NFTs than ever before.

The Blind Boxes team will be at Art Basel this year. Are you an artist, creator, or brand looking to collaborate? Schedule time for a coffee or 30-minute meeting with the team here.
