Obvious is a French collective of artists and researchers who use artificial intelligence algorithms to create works of art. They made headlines in 2018 when one of their artworks – the first of its kind – was sold at a Christie’s auction in New York. At the crossroads between classical art and cutting-edge technology, their creations are exhibited in some of the world’s leading art galleries. Pioneers in digital art and the first French artists to have created NFTs, they collaborated on an NFT project in 2021 with renowned Parisian art gallery Kamel Mennour. Through their work and their collaborative projects, Obvious aims to contribute to the next visual and artistic revolution by giving creatives in all industries access to the tools developed in research.
Throughout the festival, a cryptoart exhibition curated by the collective examines the relationship between art and artificial intelligence, bringing together several French artists who are blazing the trail in NFTs. The exhibition will take place from 6 to 10 July on the rooftop terrace of the Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann store.
