Art inspired by football on exhibition at the World Cup in Qatar

According to a released statement, Dr. Shurooq Amin believes that football lovers who admire the game’s aesthetic qualities are similar to art aficionados in their passion for it. Furthermore, the connection of 32 artists from both the traditional and digital worlds, according to Ithra, connects Web2 to Web3, football to art, and humans to machines.

On the occasion of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) in Dubai is presenting a football-themed exhibition.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will fuse the pieces from the contending countries in each match into a unique piece based on the results of the game. A collaboration between man and machine will result in a unique collection of 64 NFTs.

The exhibition is scheduled to end on Dec. 23.
