With the booth at NFT Paris, Breezy Art remarked on its nature, reasons for existence, and dreams.
Breezy Art is not a gallery; instead, it is a space for creative experimentation, a laboratory for art and technology where people with different skills can come and play, share, leave a mark, and contribute to creating the next thing, together. It is also a lab for thinking of new ways to approach art curation, through creative writing and experimental social perspective.

For NFT Paris 2023, we created a path of geolocalized messages that were taking people to the Breezy booth.
We also hosted a table where people could write messages and participate in creating what we called our “Paper Chain.”
Here are the scanned results of a very participative interactive performance.
On display on the 4 screens,
Criticize by Creating: the launch of the new project by Breezy Art, a space on SuperRare platform, with the participation of 11 exceptional artists (amongst which one collaboration) who commented on social issues through their art and accepted the challenge of writing the next history book together, using their words and the blockchain time stamp.
Anemale, Bard Ionson + Lawrence Lee, Encapsuled, J’erre, Joe Chiappetta, Kenny Schachter, Moxarra, Osinachi, Ravi Koranga, Reinhard Schmid.
Alternative Dimensions, the project curated by Eleonora Brizi with V-Art for the first NFT-Collection with the Andrey Sheptytsky National Museum, where 10 NFT artists created unique works inspired by the museum’s classical pieces with the special participation of Kevin Abosch, who donated one work from his existing collection. Proceeds from the sale were used to support the functioning of Ukrainian museums, aid preservation work, and, further digitize other works from the National Museum in Lviv.

The artists and art featured in the book CRYPTOART BEGINS, an idea by The NFT Magazine, curated by Eleonora Brizi, published by Rizzoli Editore. A copy of the physical book was also on display.
“CRYPTO ART BEGINS is not about the chronological history of Crypto Art, nor about transactions, NFT standards, or auctions. It is about Art. A collection of extraordinary stories through the eyes of 50 artists who contributed to the start and the evolution of the Crypto Art movement.”
And finally, a screen featuring curatorial texts, statements, thoughts, feelings, and ideas on what it means to be the art curators of the future. For this screen, we experimented with creative writing. Here are some curatorial texts written by Eleonora Brizi during the years, visually reinterpreted by artist Isa Kost.
We were also amongst the speakers and participated in the panel about art curation together with other curators in the space.
