A $475 NFT ticket can be purchased to see Beeple’s $69 Million NFT at an IRL party

.

We can all agree NFTs are kind of weird, so here’s another twist to puzzle over: in November, you’ll be able to see the “inaugural display” of The First 5000 Days, the collage/NFT that Beeple sold for $69 million earlier this year. The image can be viewed right now by simply searching the title on Google. Because digital images are so versatile, you can also pull it up on your TV or project it on a projector.

Here’s a simple tweet I’m going to embed with the image:

The meaningful twist for this party is that it will feature the first authorized public projection of The First 5000 Days. The image’s owner, Metapurse (the crypto fund managed by ), is using its unique copy of the image, or at least its nominally exclusive display rights, to set up this piece of art for a night in a gallery.

So the question is, is it cool to see an “authorized” debut for an image that you can see at any time?

I think the answer is yes for at least some people. This could be like waiting in line at Supreme to order a knockoff or watching a re-release in theaters that has been out for years, which you can do at home. maybe you don’t want the money, but there are still people who do. I don’t usually. Although I did pay to see the 2005 Pride & Prejudice at Alamo Drafthouse a couple years ago, despite owning a digital copy of it at home. It was very impressive on the large screen. )

What is the best way to see it in person? According to Metapurse, the inaugural showcase will be projected on a custom three-story-tall hybrid digital and physical structure. This has real potential. I believe that big artworks are the most interesting artworks.

If you are interested, the image can be seen as part of an NFT event that will take place in New York City in November. The event, called Dreamverse New York, will be split into two parts. There’ll be a gallery during the day, which will showcase more than 150 artists in an “interactive digital art experience.” Then at night, there’ll be a party and, notably, the display of Beeple’s work.

Tickets start at $150 for a plain ol’ ticket to the party. If you want an NFT ticket (of course you do), you’ll have to pay at least $475 to get into the party. If you just want to attend the gallery, you can get an NFT ticket for $30.
