Is there a big industry trend you’re backing in terms of your agency offering, and why do you think this area will continue to grow and influence the PR practice?
At the forefront of contemporary art and culture communications for over two decades, FITZ & CO sees industry pivots through digital technology as a constant. Certainly not so much a trend as it is a force, a great deal of the current fine art discourse centers around the urgent digital evolution in collecting – NFT comprehension and advising across asset class and audience is a core competency that we’re actively growing for our clientele.
Currently, we are working directly with what we believe will be a leading platform for blue-chip and emerging digital art. Aorist is a next generation cultural institution supporting a climate-forward NFT marketplace for artists creating at the edge of art and technology. With a cross-disciplinary program of exhibitions, commissions, partnerships, and an incubator, Aorist bridges the digital and physical domains while supporting experimentation, co-creation and innovation.
In pairing our team’s modern analytics capabilities with profound institutional knowledge and depth of relationships, FITZ & CO is constantly positioning itself to service our clients within an industry defined as much by innovation in commerce as it is expressive impact.
