︎ New project 3XR> NEARCRIBS
NEARCRIBS is a new project from 3XR that is a collection of generative NFTs of virtual spaces. In 3XR everyone can have a personal space. Each CRIB is a combination of 5 different layers with different rarity traits. CRIBS owners are able to customize them as they like and use them to show minted or owned tokens. At this stage (Gen 0) only 100 unique tokens were minted. By signing up on CRIBlist, subscribers received a token in their wallet that they could mint in the pre-sale on June 15th.

︎ COMA, a short-story experiment on 3XR
Last March a literary experiment was launched on the 3XR platform by writer frnvpr.near. Aiming to experiment with non-linear narratives presented in the metaverse, this project was supported by Incubadora DAO, VR DAO (https://gov.near.org/c/creatives/virtual-reality/49) and NEAR University through its fellowships program (https://www.near.university/).

︎ New partnership with 3XR Space
Incubadora recently announced an official partnership with 3XR Space, a Web 3.0 platform for customizable virtual galleries. 3XR took its first steps within the NEAR protocol as a feature of the Mintbase marketplace. With the CreateThing tool any NEAR user with their NearID can customize a gallery by choosing from the thousands of NFTs available on Mintbase, i.e. the tool allows curation in the metaverse and at very affordable prices (fees are minimal). Another new feature is about creating galleries from a DAO’s adress. To learn step-by-step how to create your own customizable gallery and launch exhibitions, showrooms and more, we have created a video tutorial (see FAQ).
With this new partnership, Incubadora intends to contribute to the curation of projects, events and exhibitions and to create bridges between 3XR Space and Lusophone artists. We will invite curators, artists and mainstream culture professionals to use, experiment and learn about blockchain, metaverse and NFTs and have them contribute with their thoughts, knowledge and aesthetic quality.
Follow 3XR's social media and keep up with upcoming developments :)
︎ Documenta 15 - the collectivity in focus
Every five years happens in the city of Kassel, Germany, one of the most important art exhibitions: the Documenta. This year, 2022, the 15th edition will take place between June 18 and September 25, curated and directed by a collective of artists called ruangrupa based in Jakarta, Indonesia. The motto for this year's Documenta is the Indonesian term lumbung which refers to community rice growing barns, and the entire edition will revolve around the idea of collectivity, the sharing of resources in a communal way, and collaboration.
The ruangrupa group invites other groups, collectives and organizations to practice lumbung, creating new forms of collectivity and sharing and working towards the emergence of new models of sustainability. For example, the Berlin-based artist collective Fehras Publishing Practices, which understands the publishing process as the production and accumulation of knowledge and which builds on publications to create seminars, meetings, films, installations, and other artistic interventions. Or Subversive Film, which is a collective of production and research in Cinema that aims to bring new light to historical works about Palestine and its surroundings, preserving and investigating archives on the subject. There are dozens of participating collectives and artists and a program available on the site for those who cannot visit in person, with talks and lectures:
