Blackdove, the category-defining NFT (non-fungible token) digital art gallery, has announces a collaboration with LG Electronics USA to deliver NFT artwork directly to LG Direct View LED Extreme Home Cinema displays.
NFTs have rapidly become the dominant medium in the art market. The collaboration between LG and Blackdove will allow patrons to showcase their NFT collections on an in-home art installation.
The grand scale, color fidelity, and rich contrast of the LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema displays make them an ideal canvas for NFT artwork. With a range of sizes and aspect ratios from 81 to 325 inches, 2K to 8K, including dual width configuration options, these displays can create immersive experiences without an invasive and time-consuming custom design and configuration process.
Blackdove a ‘Natural Fit’ for LG
“Working with Blackdove to deliver unique digital art to the LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema was a natural fit for LG because we know the transformational power of their NFT art collection,” said Dan Smith, LG Electronics USA’s vice president in charge of DVLED displays. “LG has worked with Blackdove in the past to create fine art installations at galleries and art festivals around the globe. Now, with Blackdove on these luxury residential displays, we can bring the same kind of incredible visual experience into the home.”
LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema owners will have instant access to five NFTs from the Blackdove collection. These pieces were selected by Blackdove curator Jess Conatser to showcase the breadth of styles and subject matter available from the gallery. Including works by Johnathan McCabe, Franck Lefebvre, and Jamie Scott, this NFT capsule collection will cater to a variety of spaces and aesthetics.
Understanding the Value of the Art Form
“We want collectors to understand the value of the art form, and we want artists to have access to the best displays possible. To that end, we’ve hand-selected unique, tokenized artworks that celebrate the diverse range of styles and techniques found across new media from both emerging and established artists,” Conatser said. “This partnership with LG will showcase the beauty of digital art, propelling the medium forward and shaping the future of living with digital art as NFTs.”
Users can manage their digital art catalog, including any privately owned NFTs, through the Blackdove app, available on iOS, Android, LG’s webOS platform, or the Web. Blackdove also has direct integrations with leading home automation software providers, including Control4, Crestron, and Savant.
