The Dubai exhibition is set to occur in collaboration with Amrita Sethi, a popular UAE-based NFT artist. It narrates the development story of the CBD with the United Arab Emirates over the last 50 years.

The premier event, which is set to last until the end of February, has been titled "This is the future of Art" and presents work through a mix of technology. All pieces to be utilized at the exhibition will be presented in augmented reality technology. Sethi, the chief partner for the event, has produced 28 distinct versions of artwork pieces of voice note art for the CBD with the theme "Dubai," and each piece of artwork is physical, with its NFT digital replica and distinct angles of AR.
