Art Fair Report: Tokens of the Future

As many countries in the Asia-Pacific have not yet reopened their borders to nonresidents, hybrid models combining physical events and virtual viewing platforms remained the new normal at fairs across the region in early 2022. With limited travel opportunities, collectors’ attention to local artists has been sustained while non-fungible tokens (NFTs) continue to be the new darling.
