Digital art and NFTs: legal challenges and creative opportunities

Nov 2022
PLMJ Auditorium - Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo 43, 1050-119 Lisbon

PLMJ has teamed up with the Ephemeral Ethernal platform and Underdogs Gallery to host a PLMJ Session that delves into the digital art market and the much debated and controversial NFTs.

On 23 November, PLMJ's auditorium will be the starting point for a journey that will alternate between the physical and digital worlds through a conference divided into two significant and complementary parts. The first part will feature Serena Cabrita Neto, the partner who heads PLMJ's Tax practice, Hugo Monteiro de Queirós, Partner and head of the Intellectual Property practice, and Eduardo Quinteiro, director of Ephemeral Ethernal. Together, they will address the financial, legal and tax outlook for companies operating in the digital art and NFT trading industry. Pedro da Costa, from Unit London, will moderate this first panel.

The second part comes from the creator's perspective and  will feature artists Rita João, from Pedrita Studio, and Julien Raffin. Both are pioneers in the world of NFTs and they will present the concept of phygital – the intersection between physical and digital art – and talk about its impact on the wider art market. The panel is joined by Romain Trevisan, CEO of Cultural Affairs, and it will be moderated by Pauline Foessel, curator and founder of ARTPOOL and co-founder of Underdogs Gallery.

This panel will be an exploration into the new possibilities and challenges that the technology associated with NFTs and their creative implications bring to their body of work, and to the world of art in general.

To give body and context to this conference, the PLMJ Auditorium will also have an exhibition of physical and digital works which will demonstrate the relationship and nuances between these two universes.
