at Pier 36
299 South Street
NowHere participated in NADA New York for the first time, introducing exonemo's new project "METAVERSE PETSHOP Beta". NowHere booth was highlighted by many art fair reviews including The New York Times.
"While digital art is relatively scarce at NADA there is one tour-de-force digital work, a Metaverse “Petshop” created by the artist duo Exonemo (Kensuke Sembo and Yae Akaiwa), mounted at NowHere (Booth 3.15), a gallery devoted to Japanese artists in New York. The installation includes stacked cages with computer monitors in them on which appear uncanny animals “owned” by various people — sometimes anonymous. (You can, predictably, track the progress of these pets online at https://metaversepet.zone.)" -New York Times
