‘XXI’, a landmark contemporary art exhibition, will launch at the new, state-of-the-art HOFA Gallery in London’s Mayfair on 20 February 2020.  It is set to be the world’s first ever asset-based tokenised contemporary art exhibition, using cutting-edge blockchain technology and cryptography to facilitate access to coveted blue-chip contemporary art.

The highly anticipated highlights of ‘XXI’ will be rare and unseen works by established contemporary artists such as Kaws, RETNA and Damian Hirst.  These include the Blame Game Portfolio, a set of 10 prints by Kaws which has been shrouded in mystery since its shadow début in 2016. With sprightly colours and a suggestive title, these prints have the intrigue of a jigsaw puzzle or a comic detective game. At once stimulating, playful and yet, somewhat ominous, Blame Gameis expected to be a crowd favourite and stands as the most valuable artwork set for display at ‘XXI’. 

RETNA’s Los Ne El Barrio joins Kaws’ Blame Game on the list of rare features at the upcoming exhibition. This abstract lettered painting, finished with rare blue diamond dust and seemingly laden with hidden meanings, represents a unique style of contemporary abstract art that’s highly sought after by art connoisseurs. Also on the list of exclusive features, is the Heart Spin Painting by Damian Hirst. Hirst’s popular spin paintings achieved international renown when a large reproduction was used to cover the floor of the stadium for the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games of 2012. Heart Spin Painting is a colourful piece whose piecing and energetic radial symmetry evokes the speaking gaze of a knowing eye.

All told, ‘XXI’ will feature a portfolio of carefully sourced artworks collectively worth more than $1M and individually projected to appreciate in value based on current market trends. Other participating artists include Banksy, Jeff Koons, Joseph Klibansky, George Condo, Zhuang Hong Yi and Ilhwa Kim. Indeed, the upcoming ‘XXI’ exhibition is anticipated to a hotspot for investments in high-yield contemporary art.  

Commenting on the upcoming exhibition, HOFA co-founder, Elio D'Anna, said "We are proud to unveil this project which has been over 12 months in the making. It’s going to be an extravaganza of contemporary art. We are bringing the crème of contemporary art together for a ground-breaking show which we know viewers will enjoy.” 

The exhibition will run for 2 weeks until 5 March at the new HOFA Gallery space on Bruton Street in London’s Mayfair.  

HOFA’s new gallery is located at 11 Bruton Street in Mayfair, London. ‘XXI’ will run for 2 week from the 20 February to 5 March 2020.
