NFS NSFW NFT is a new online exhibition, hosted at 3D virtual gallery New Art City, exploring the critical poetics of this particular not-for-sale, not-safe-for-work, and non-fungible-token moment.

An exhibition produced by members of NEW INC and Rhizome’s Art & Code track. They are showing, hosting, and minting — all, to explore the critical poetics of this particular not-for-sale, not-safe-for-work, and non-fungible-token moment.

They created four community gardens with specific themes, landscapes, and art critters from AI video and invisible audio to hyperlinks and livestreams. Each ecosystem is skinned with digital debris from the vectoralists (to borrow from McKenzie Wark). They have built on, under, and all-around their topology. Holding space. Getting lost. Keeping company.

The main garden illustrates this dissonance between community and big tech, where the landscape literally documents the making of NFS NSFW NFT: rivers flowing with our Slack threads, mountains skinned with our email, audio from our Zoom calls scattered everywhere, along with essays from Lindsay Howard and Zach Kaplan.

The exhibition marks the culmination of the past year’s work by members of the Art & Code track, a membership-based program for artists, designers, and technologists offered by Rhizome and NEW INC, the New Museum-led incubator.
