The gm, the Bad, and the Ugly
In this week's news: The questionable funding of celebrity NFT projects, the $MOCA hack, Brantly Millegan's removal from ENS, and the advent of gmDAO.
On August 19, friends of Outland, Vera the Ape, and James Jean gathered at Bridge House in Los Angeles to celebrate the opening of “Infinite Museum,” a collaborative digital exhibition featured Jean’s Fragments (2022) hosted by OnCyber and designed by Dan Brunn Architecture. The warm light of golden hour complimented a large-scale LED wall installation that exhibited works by Jean, including selections from Fragments, new animations, and renderings of the forthcoming glass sculpture Pagoda. Attendees were also given a special preview of Adrift, Jean’s next NFT project with Outland, in the form of large-scale prints depicting characters from the series. DJ Kenny Yim provided music, and guests enjoyed seasonal specialty cocktails and small bites. The event was organized in collaboration with Éclat Public Relations, with support from generous beverage sponsors Peroni, Ghia, and Madre Mezcal.
