KREUZLINGEN.- SmartStamp, the pioneering new standard in identification and authentication for the art world, today announced major collaborations, timed to the launch of the new SmartStamp App in the Google Play Store on 1 September. Across an artwork’s journey—from the studio, to storage, to the collector, gallery, or museum wall—SmartStamp is a long-term management and identification solution for anyone involved in the creation, preservation, and protection of cultural objects. The new SmartStamp App leverages patented state-of-the-art anti-counterfeit technology and AI to bring the groundbreaking security and timestamping power of blockchain to the art world.

In addition to mounting a VIP program in collaboration with Frieze Seoul next month, the tech company continues its collaboration with Metagolden by providing its patented AI technology to physically-digitally link an emerald and gold ring with its NFT counterpart in the upcoming Sotheby’s jewelry auction on 24 September. SmartStamp has also embarked on a new relationship with Digivault, an FCA-registered digital assets custodian, bolstering SmartStamp’s highly secure technology with the strength of Digivault’s government grade digital vaults, escrow, and OTC services.

SmartStamp is Official Frieze Week Seoul Partner

3 September: Talk with Kimsooja

SmartStamp, as Official Partner of Frieze Week Seoul on 2-5 September, hosts a talk for invited guests with internationally renowned artist Kimsooja, introduced by Alexandra Munroe (Director, Curatorial Affairs at the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi; Senior Curator, Asian Art and Senior Advisor, Global Arts at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum). Kimsooja whose work will be presented by Axel Verdoordt Gallery at KIAF, has been working closely with SmartStamp over the past two years to address authenticity, ownership, and growing IP concerns especially for artists creating conceptual and ephemeral works. An institutional installation artist whose work is highly recognizable, Kimsooja embraced early on the ways that technology can protect her work and IP from counterfeiting.

The Frieze talk will offer insights into how the artist is leveraging new technologies to support her work, and explore her recent and upcoming projects, including her 2021 Leeum Museum commission and the September unveiling of her stained-glass cathedral windows for the Saint Étienne de Metz’s 800th anniversary—making her the first woman to contribute a design, as well as the first non-European and first 21st-century artist to do so. The talk will also consider SmartStamp’s intervention into the market more broadly in the context of art, tech, AI, and the blockchain. To further support artists’ legacies, SmartStamp has created the first smart contract royalties digitally linked through AI fingerprinting to their physical creations.

SmartStamp x Digivault Partnership

SmartStamp has embarked on a partnership with Digivault, an FCA-registered digital assets custodian in Mayfair London, following a breakthrough case study combining both companies’ technology and resources to authenticate, record, and secure a series of Gordon Cheung paintings from his July 2022 exhibition at Almine Rech Gallery Paris. The process spans authentication of the works via the SmartStamp App AI, and creation of blockchain NFTs (non-fungible tokens) representing the creator royalties of the works and storage of the NFTs within Digivault’s government grade vaults. The NFTs will be stored until a secondary market transaction of the physical paintings, with due diligence of the transfer supported through Digivault’s operations and crypto escrow service. Following the success of the case study, the automation from SmartStamp App’s smart contract NFTs to Digivault custody will be an optional feature for SmartStamp users by early next year.
