Verse is pleased to host its first-ever exhibition, This Is Tomorrow, to be revealed in three parts from June 16 to July 7. The exhibition is a presentation of NFT artworks selected by a panel of twelve gallerists, curators, critics and artists. Each has chosen a work by an artist exploring new ways of creating art.

The exhibition title borrows from the iconic 1956 exhibition at Whitechapel Gallery, London, where a radical syndicate of young artists, writers, and critics known as the Independent Group exhibited a number of works examining the part technology plays in everyday life.

Starting with our first exhibition, Verse aims to encourage the collaboration between artists and curators, and create a space where artists can showcase works that may not have been ownable to collectors before NFTs. Yesterday, artists more or less had to stick to painting and/or sculpture to make a living through their art. Today, collectors can own works by artists working in other media that require no less creativity and talent to create high quality work.

Jason Gringler’s STUDIO VIDEO (FIRE), is perhaps a good illustration of this. The work is a video made by the artist in his studio in 2016. It’s beautiful, authentic, and just so real. There’s a feeling that it came from a place of curiosity on the artist’s part. He was playing and experimenting for the sake of creating, and the resulting work has the feel of something that is anything but an NFT for the sake of an NFT.

We’re incredibly excited to present the below works, and we hope you enjoy them.
