New Art for
a New Generation

At a time when the art world is witnessing rapid changes, collectors and art-lovers are looking to understand what the future holds, and whether the presence of new collectors brought in through digital platforms and NFT portals will create transformations in what we see, buy, or appreciate. Is there such a thing as new art for a new generation? Or will the art world continue to rely on the tried and tested, the brand-name artists and the kind of art buying which has defined the market in previous decades? Join renowned expert Amy Cappellazzo, Former Chairman and Executive Vice President at Sotheby’s, Kate Bryan Head of Soho House Collections and Sky Arts Presenter, and Private Investor, Art Collector and Philanthropist Lady Alison Deighton in a session moderated by Abu Dhabi Art Director Dyala Nusseibeh in what promises to be a fascinating discussion on this topic.

How are NFTS taking over the art world?


In March 2021, Christie’s auction for Beeple’s “Everyday – The First 5,000 Days ” made history, with the work selling for $69,346,250 and paid for in cryptocurrency.
The new buzz word in the art world is NFTS, this panel aims to shed light on what NFTS are, how they are affecting the art world and what the future of NFTS looks like, for an audience relatively new to the subject and interested to learn more.

None of the views expressed here should be regarded as financial advice.
