  • Objkt.One platform hosted 26,400 tez art sale
  • Agoria exhibition included free live mint for museum visitors

The Musée d’Orsay, in partnership with visionary Web3 artist and DJ Agoria, has taken a monumental step into the future of art and technology with its latest exhibition, Le Code d’Orsay. This historic exhibition, which runs until March 10, marks the museum’s ambitious foray into the realm of Web3 art, leveraging the Tezos blockchain to offer a unique, interactive experience to art enthusiasts.

The exhibition has successfully introduced the digital art sphere to one of the world’s most revered art institutions, showcasing how traditional art spaces can evolve to embrace the digital age. Agoria, alongside artist Johan Lescure, has crafted an immersive experience that allows visitors to engage directly with the artworks, blending the boundaries between the physical and virtual worlds.

Highlighting the event’s success, the Sigma Lumina installation, a centerpiece of the exhibition, offers museum-goers the opportunity to mint their own digital art pieces live, using their breath as the creative catalyst. The Musée D’Orsay is currently exhibiting the artwork {Sigma Lumina} which gives the visitors the ability to live mint unique works on the Tezos blockchain, activated by human breath. Five works inspired by the visitors’ creations sold on March 1st for a combined 26,400 tez with collector Sebastian Borget, co-founder and Chief Operations Officer of Pixowl, the studio behind The Sandbox, among the purchasers. This innovative interaction draws a new audience to the museum and fosters a deeper, personal connection between the artwork and its viewers.

The Musée d’Orsay’s venture into Web3 art does not end with the exhibition. Following a sell-out sale that saw 26,400 tez traded on the Objkt.One platform, Agoria and Lescure are set to release two additional digital artworks. These pieces, inspired by the ongoing exhibition and available for auction, continue to explore the dialogue between digital innovation and artistic expression.

The collaboration with the Tezos Foundation underscores a year-long commitment to exploring digital art’s potential and its integration within traditional art spaces. This partnership represents a significant milestone in the institutional adoption of Web3 technologies, highlighting a shared vision of innovation and accessibility in art.

The museum’s engagement with Web3 art, facilitated by the Tezos blockchain, not only paves the way for future collaborations but also redefines the possibilities of digital art in enriching cultural heritage. As the Le Code d’Orsay exhibition draws to a close, its impact on the art world and the potential for future projects remains a testament to the transformative power of combining art, technology, and community.

For those interested in experiencing the convergence of past and present through digital art, the Musée d’Orsay invites you to explore the Sigma Lumina works and the broader Le Code d’Orsay exhibition before it concludes. This pioneering project not only celebrates the fusion of art and technology but also sets a new standard for museums worldwide in the digital era.
