Outland Takes NFT NYC Week

by Outland

Last Monday, June 20, Outland took over the rooftop of the Gansevoort Hotel in New York’s Meatpacking District for our first ever in-person event, in celebration of NFT NYC week. Artists, collectors, writers, and holders of Fang Lijun’s Elemental, Rachel Rose’s L’informe, and James Jean’s Fragments filled the room, sipping a special cucumber cocktail inspired by Jean’s forthcoming Pagoda and snacking on hors d’oeuvres. Skype Williams and quest?onmarq provided music in the form of two electrifying DJ sets, and a 10-foot LED installation illuminating the room featured a video compilation celebrating the full portfolio of Outland’s artists projects so far. As a surprise, attendees got a special sneak peek at Ian Cheng’s forthcoming NFT release, 3FACE. Partygoers even received a special POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol) created by James Jean specifically for the event. 

We’re thrilled to have kicked off NFT week with our vibrant community. Check out some select photographs from the night by Scott Rudd below, and join our Discord to be in the loop about future happenings!
