"Proof of Work" brings together works engaged with the culture around cryptocurrency, bitcoin and blockchain as a possible new infrastructure for money, computing and organizing. This includes artwork made by crypto builders, crypto experiments built by artists, and paintings and drawings that resonate with cryptocurrency but predate the invention of bitcoin.

"Proof of Work" takes its title from the consensus algorithm used in blockchain and cryptocurrencies. A protocol for curating designed by Simon Denny has distributed decisions regarding the inclusion of artworks and artists across a group of artists, curators and technologists.

With a conversation program by New Models – Caroline Busta, Lil Internet, Daniel Keller
