Join us for a conversation with Nicole Sales '12, Associate Vice President, Business Manager, 20th and 21st Century Art at Christie's and multidisciplinary artist Carrie Able '04 about their careers, current market trends and creative process at the convergence of art and tech, including the explosion of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens).

We'll learn more about the meteoric rise of NFTs, a unique file that lives in the blockchain, and the sudden popularity of digital sales across creative industries, from arts to sports (an NFT of a video of Lebron James dunking sold for more than $200K) and the music industry (Kings of Leon is the first band to release their album exclusively in the form of NFTs).

We'll also answer your burning questions and discuss the opportunities and challenges related to the commercialization of using blockchain technology in the arts and creative industries.
