As a gallery, we are inherently curious about the capabilities of the new technology and what the potential impacts may be on the art world, and on society as a whole. For example, in the art world, this technology can be used as proof of ownership – a new way of tracking authenticity and provenance, one that can help combat fraud and forgeries. This exhibition is the first in a series the gallery plans to host in the coming years exploring the new technology and its possible creative uses.
