Bahrain’s Dar Alfann Gallery has launched NFT MENA Exhibit 2022, the region’s first dedicated NFT art exhibition.
The exhibition, under the patronage of Shaikh Rashid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, President of the National Council for Arts, is taking place at Ritz-Carlton Hotel until March 18.
The exhibition will hold a series of panel sessions with multiple speakers from the public and private sectors. The sessions will discuss various topics related to NFT technology and art, technological development and future readiness, trading NFTs, and NFTs from the artist’s perspective.
Shaikh Rashid said: “We are pleased to see the Kingdom of Bahrain hosting the first NFT exhibition in MENA. This is a major regional event that presents a great opportunity for local to share their experiences and collaborate with international artists, which goes in line with the vision of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, and the direction set by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister.”
