Opening next week, the launch edition of Digital Art Week comes to London across 3rd -10th Nov 2022.
A week of curated free-to-attend events brings immersive art, parties and talks to the Capital

Celebrating the extraordinary creativity of emerging art formats (from animations and digital art collectibles to augmented reality, virtual reality and multi-sensory installations), this launch edition invites visitors into a portal of art experiences blurring the boundaries between the physical and digital.
Events to look forward to include a VIP launch reception for creators, talent, and tastemakers, exhibitions with rare pieces of digital art from over 40 major artists (including XCOPY, Beeple, Andres Reisinger, Six N. Five), well-known DJ’s, digital art installations, industry panel talks and much more. It’s a great opportunity to discover immersive art in what is set to be a groundbreaking new addition to London’s art scene.
We’re very pleased with what we achieved – not only because this is only our launch edition, spanning such a diverse spread of cutting-edge creative talent, but also because there is a real sense of excitement and optimism about digital art and immersive ‘phygital’ experiences as a whole, seeing innovative artworks and connecting with our peers in person.Shaina Silva, co-founder of Digital Art Week.
This bold and ambitious Digital Art Week London launch is the first of many events planned in Paris, Lisbon, New York, Miami, Seoul and Tokyo.
