37xDubai, an art gallery set to open in Dubai later this month, is poised to become a unique educational hub for artists and art enthusiasts interested in nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and the broader Web3 ecosystem. The gallery plans to offer workshops to educate visitors on these emerging technologies.
A Fusion of Art and Technology
Danilo Carlucci, the founder of investment firm Morningstar Ventures and 37xDubai, located in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), shared the gallery’s vision. He described it as an endeavor to unite art and technology in a single space. For Morningstar Ventures, traditionally a venture capital fund, the gallery represents a diversification into the dynamic realm of digital art and NFTs.

While the gallery will prominently showcase NFTs, it aims to be more than just an NFT marketplace. Carlucci emphasized the gallery’s commitment to educating its visitors about NFTs, helping them understand the technology and its implications. This educational approach sets 37xDubai apart.
Unique NFT Membership Tokens
The gallery’s innovation extends to its use of NFTs as membership tokens, inspired by its Tree of Life art installation. This creative use of NFTs allows visitors to engage with the technology in a tangible way, demonstrating the potential beyond the financial aspects.

37xDubai is not venturing into the NFT and Web3 space alone. It has secured guidance from advisors associated with Binance NFT and Binance Charity. These collaborations will aid the gallery in organizing events and workshops focused on Web3 technology adoption.
A Different Perspective on NFTs
Carlucci addressed concerns about the current state of the NFT market and why 37xDubai is entering this space. He expressed unwavering belief in the technology and highlighted the unique goals of the NFTs featured in the gallery. Unlike tech companies, the artists working with 37xDubai are driven by creativity and view blockchain technology as a means of authentication and creative expression.
“The incentive is creative. They want to make something creative, and they just happen to use blockchain technology for authentication purposes and for maybe sometimes the creative purpose, but the incentive is always creative.”
In summary, 37xDubai is set to become an art gallery with a difference, offering a blend of art and technology education. By focusing on NFTs and Web3, it aims to be a catalyst for creative innovation in the digital art space, while also demonstrating the artistic potential of blockchain technology.
