Artwrld is pleased to present Fight of the Century a work by Paul Pfeiffer.

The work is part of a collection entitled Vs - a meditation on our collective cultural obsession with mass spectacle and ritual. The series consists of edited footage pulled from two iconic boxing matches featuring the iconic boxer, Manny Pacquiao. This is the artist’s first NFT collection.

Paul Pfeiffer has been working across the mediums of video, photography, installation, and sculpture since the late 1990s. His work examines our collective cultural obsession with mass spectacle and the technological apparatuses that simultaneously produce, document and permit the wide consumption of these ritualistic events.

This work is presented as part of HERE, an event dedicated to digital art taking place at 9 Cork Street, Frieze Gallery in London. This event represents an extension of Verse's ongoing partnership with galleries and artists who have shown dedication to fostering the growth of digital art within the contemporary art scene.

To purchase please visit Artwrld.

Vs. exemplifies Artwrld’s mission of presenting rigorous, curated collaborations with groundbreaking artists like Paul Pfeiffer on an accessible and engaging minting platform.

The collection Vs includes two long-form video works (each an edition of 5 plus 1 AP) and 150 shorter clips (each unique and variable in duration).
