The Future Art Ecosystems: Art x Metaverse (FAE2) launch presentation was livestreamed via Serpentine’s Twitch on July 13 2021, marking the release of the publication on July 6.👾
FAE2 (Art x Metaverse) is the second in a series of annual strategic briefings launched in 2020 that provides concepts, references, language and arguments that can be integrated into operational agendas for 21st century cultural infrastructure.
It focuses on the larger stakes involved in revamping ‘digital strategy’ at cultural institutions, driven by the advent of the metaverse—an always-online, persistent, spatial ‘second’ world that constitutes a fundamental shift in our notion of digital frameworks and presence.
FAE2 is produced by Serpentine Arts Technologies and R&D Platform in collaboration with Rival Strategy and Luke Caspar Pearson, Guest Producer.
