The work will be curated by renowned photographer Misan Harriman, reported edition of The Art Newspaper. The curator will search for African and Asian artists whose work has not previously been known among NFT owners.

“As the first curator of this collection, I want to make sure the community is exposed to different artists with different opinions. The permanent collection of the Tezos Foundation will support and celebrate a new generation of talent who have chosen new technologies to deliver their vision,” said Harriman.

The collection will take the form of a digital art gallery that will open in the summer and will be posted on the foundation’s website. Despite the general confusion in the cryptocurrency community over the past week, Tezos is confident that NFTs will break down barriers in the art world.

Tezos Ecosystem Global Communications Director Reid Yager said that despite the successful adoption of NFTs around the world and the lowering of entry barriers to the industry for artists, many countries in Asia and Africa still have strict NFT laws. However, in the coming years, thanks to a vibrant digital art community, artists around the world will be able to freely create and sell their NFTs, Yager said.

Recall that last week Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the start of testing support for digital collectibles on the Instagram platform.
