Check out Artnet’s article on the launch of Artwrld NFT platform featuring artist Walid Raad’s new digital artwork benefitting ArteEast!
“First up is a project by Artwrld’s third co-founder, artist Walid Raad. Called Festival of Gratitude, the project comprises a series of computer-generated birthday cakes for global dictators, sheikhs, presidents, and other 20th-century rulers. It’s set to be released in May, coinciding with Frieze New York, with a portion of the sale’s proceeds will go to ArteEast, a New York-based non-profit that supports Middle Eastern artists and arts organizations.”
