The ICA Miami’s walls, which also display a Warhol artwork, are home to Punk #305. She arrives in this place. She will be on exhibit until December 20 and stay in the museum’s permanent collection.
The fact that Yuga was able to make an extraordinarily generous donation to a cultural organization in a location that had so special meaning for them has everyone there in a state of ecstasy. At the moment, “Virtual Lady” is at home.
Introducing The Punks Legacy Project
Known CryptoPunks from our collection will be given to museums all over the world as part of the Punks Legacy Project, which Yuga Labs unveiled on November 23. To provide these museums with security, NFT display best practices, and Web3 education tools, their team will supervise the donation and installation of several CryptoPunks at prominent contemporary art institutions around the globe.
Punk #305 will be added to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami’s permanent collection as a memento of the launch of this campaign. We are pleased to work with ICA Miami given Yuga Labs’ deep Miami roots and the fact that the acquisition of a CryptoPunk by a significant art museum recognizes the collection’s pioneering role in the development of cryptoart. The fact that a Punk is displayed alongside well-known artists in a museum supports my impression that night when Beeple’s artwork made history: NFTs are revolutionizing contemporary art.
ICA Miami unveiled Punk #305 on Friday, December 2. The artwork will be kept in view by the institution forever.
About Andy Warhol
American pop art pioneer Andy Warhol was also a producer, director, and visual artist. He lived from 6 August 1928 until 22 February 1987. His artwork spans a range of mediums, including painting, silkscreening, photography, cinema, and sculpture, and it explores the connection between creative expression, advertising, and the celebrity culture that was prevalent in the 1960s. His most well-known works include the multi-media performances known as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, the experimental films Empire (1964) and Chelsea Girls (1966), the silkscreen paintings Campbell’s Soup Cans and Marilyn Diptych (1962), and the works on paper Empire and Chelsea Girls (1966–67).
