xxnft is an art curating, collection intelligence & publishing platform focused on the work of women and female-identifying artists working with NFTs,

We focus on female artists because, when NFT narratives don’t celebrate women, they reiterate a marginalization that happened many times in art history (and not only in art). We want to emphasize the women’s presence in the application of NFT technology to art form from the start to alter the record. The women we focus on via interviews, features, and curated collection of artworks represent globally diverse populations, communities and politics.

The publishing platform is made of four social media – Instagram, Twitter, Discord and the xxnft website & newsletter (launch 1 September 2022).

Some argue that to promote and highlight women separately is to marginalize them, but we believe that, side-lined as they remain (currently, 95% of crypto and NFT art sales are by male artists – Artnet report – and the vast majority white and western), it’s important to tackle this imbalance form the very beginning, and not wait for celebrating the work of women artists 50 years after they made it – as it’s happening now with the ‘rediscovery’ of the work by leading female figures working in the 1950s-1970s).

With xxnft, we create the moments for questioning and influencing how art, aesthetics, politics are being recorded for posterity.
