Institut is the first art-world-led platform for NFTs committed to showcasing high-quality, curated artworks. Founded by Joe Kennedy and Jonny Burt, Institut collaborates with an international consortium of artists and collectors. Conscious of the impact of blockchain on the environment, the platform is developed using centralised custody rather than a fully decentralised ecosystem, limiting the amount of on-chain interactions and thus significantly reducing energy consumption.

From September 11 to 25, 2021, they proudly present the group show NFTism: No Fear in Trying. Curated by Kenny Schachter – physically at Unit London and virtually via Arium. The exhibition brings together 100 artists, including Rewind Collective, Marco Brambilla, Krista Kim, Olive Allen, Vhils and IX Shells. NFTs are just such a transformative phenomenon, a potential revolution in the history of art and its dissemination into the collective stream of consciousness and commerce. Kenny Schachter says. 

The physical exhibition at Unit London offers a bridge between the digital and physical worlds, with visitors able to view NFTs on screens. Accessed via new metaverse technology from Arium, the exhibition invites viewers to navigate a browser-based virtual space with 3D-video chat, allowing art lovers from across the world to visit the exhibition remotely.
