Aorist is a next generation cultural institution supporting a climate-forward NFT marketplace for artists creating at the edge of art and technology.
With a cross-disciplinary program of exhibitions, commissions, partnerships, and an incubator, Aorist bridges the digital and physical domains while supporting experimentation, co-creation and innovation.
Aorist leverages web3 technology to offer advanced tools for artists to push the limits of their practice, while protecting principles of ownership, authenticity and social capital.
Aorist is powered by Algorand, a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain that supports smart contracts, allowing audiences to discover and collect seamlessly while placing a premium on environmental responsibility and through our partnership with ClimateTrade allows us to offset our emissions and achieve carbon negativity.
Aorist is founded by Pablo Rodriguez-Fraile, a trailblazer, patron and innovator in the NFT ecosystem; Andrea Bonaceto, an artist and entrepreneur; and leading artworld figure Ximena Caminos, a creative placemaker and cultural strategist.
