Christie’s, a well-known auction house, is putting on an NFT sale called “Cartography of the Mind.” From June 21st to June 28th, about twenty-four pieces of art have been chosen for this show. It has work from some of the best digital artists working today. “Cartography of the Mind” promotes the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies with the help of Ryan Zurrer, the founder of Dialectic and Vine Ventures (MAPS).
What is the NFT sale of “Cartography of the Mind” by Christie?
In this new and risky Christie’s NFT auction, this outstanding and varied collection of art and community items is being sold. It is about psychedelic experiences and the good things that can come from them. Many artists have talked about their psychedelic experiences and how they have changed their lives.
Participants include Beeple, Sarah Meyohas, Refik Anadol, Mad Dog Jones, and IX Shells.
The NFT sale will run for a week with the help of Atomic Form (June 21st-28th). This New York NFT infrastructure company makes blockchain verification and gallery management software for the whole “Cartography of the Mind” show.
Notably, you can buy the art at Christie’s galleries in New York as well as on the official website for this NFT sale.
“Psychedelic subculture and art are inextricably linked.” Art is often used to bring together different psychedelic experiences, going beyond language, culture, and experience to say what words can’t. Rick Doblin, Ph.D., the founder and executive director of MAPS, says, “We are honored to have these brilliant artists donate their work, and we are grateful to Ryan and Christie’s for their support.”
MAPS research could save people’s lives!
The goal of Christie’s NFT auction is to raise money for MAPS, a research group that doesn’t make money for itself. MAPS was started in 1986, and it does research on psychedelic-assisted treatments, which could save lives now and in the future.
MAPS is looking into things like changing drug policy, public education, health equality, and harm reduction efforts. MAPS also pays for the world’s most cutting-edge research on psychedelic treatments. This study will be paid for with the money from Christie’s NFT sale.
Noah Davis, who is in charge of digital art at Christie’s, says it was a pleasure to work closely with Ryan and the rest of the artists on Cartography of the Mind. MAPS is a group that has helped a wide range of people, including many artists. I’m thrilled that the money they make at this auction will help them continue their work.
Christie’s is still researching the NFT market.
The first thing Christie did in the NFT market was sell “Cartography of the Mind.” Christie’s is one of the largest and most well-known art auction houses in the world. It was founded in 1776.
It is also the world leader in sales of art and high-end goods. It is now using the business know-how it has gained over many years to figure out how to deal with the digital revolution.
Lastly, Christie’s was the first major art auction house to sell an NFT last year. At $69 million, Beeple’s collage, ‘Everydays: The First 5000 Days,’ became the largest NFT sale in history.
