Vellum LA, Los Angeles’s premier art gallery for NFT-backed digital art, has done a remarkable job bringing together a traditionally digital community in-person, uniting collectors and NFT-enthusiasts at their space on Melrose. Now, in pursuit of furthering their outreach and expanding their impact, the gallery has partnered with Artsy, the leading global online art marketplace, to present a truly unique collection of works that benefit Girls Who Code.
Curated by Artist and Writer Mieke Marple and Vellum LA’s Sinziana Velicescu, Artists Who Code is a selection of NFT backed generative artworks by women and non-binary artists. Responding to the public perception of the NFT world as a male-dominated space, the exhibition foregrounds the central role and major impact women and nonbinary creators have in digital art and technology.
Using generative art techniques such as AI and algorithms as empowering tools, the show explores the realm of possibilities for a new language in the realm of digital art and beyond.
Featuring works by Morehshin Allahyari, Cibelle Cavalli Bastos, IX Shells, Sofia Crespo, LIA, Marjan Moghaddam, Helena Sarin, Anne Spalter, Alida Sun, Ellie Pritts, and more, this group exhibition sits at the intersection of innovation and outreach, bringing together feats of personal accomplishment and furthering the NFT field as a whole.
In pursuit of true community building and honor of Women’s History Month, a portion of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to the non-profit Girls Who Code, in line with Artsy’s mission to empower women and non-binary creators during women’s history month.
