Medium Description

ArtMeta is a premium, high quality Metaverse focused on fine art and connecting world class art galleries and artists directly to their collectors.

A photo-realistic virtual world, based on an imaginary island conceived by acclaimed painter Jonathan Delachaux. ArtMeta launched its first IDO in December 2021, the digital development of the island began in 2019, but the island itself is a work of art that has been 11 years in the making. Each element within the island has a purpose, meaning and story; a perfect mix of Soho, Art Basel, and the Venice Biennale.

In this new digital display paradigm, the world’s leading galleries and their artists are able to design their own unique spaces to showcase and sell fine art without the boundaries of the physical world, giving accomplished creators the means to fully express their artistic vision and reveal new possibilities. “I wanted to put a bunch of artists on an island to see what happens” -Delachaux.

More than just a metaverse, with Roger Haas at the helm as CEO, a prominent voice in the contemporary art world, having founded a world class gallery and led a museum foundation in Switzerland, ArtMeta is a leading fine art resource. Traditional art galleries need help adapting to a rapidly growing multi-billion-dollar market. The digital community is beginning to understand that important digital artworks and NFTs with high artistic value and growth potential require education and careful selection.

Each element within the island has a purpose, meaning, and story. Delachaux worked with a geologist, biologist, volcanologist, and astrologist to ensure the elements, details, and configuration of the island are congruent with nature. He also worked with an economist, and an ex-UN diplomat on the logistics of society, how it should function and how one may become part of it. The purpose of creating this state-of-the-art metaverse is to provide a digital display solution to galleries, eliminating the boundaries of the physical world, giving accomplished creators the means to fully express their artistic vision and reveal new possibilities. “I wanted to put a bunch of artists on an island to see what happens” -Delachaux.

STORY OF TCHAN ZACA (ARTMETA’S MAIN ISLAND)

Situated in an archipelago of floating islands, Tchan-Zâca is a thriving city. Currently, the archipelago is residing at the coordinates of 42 degrees South and 158 degrees East, drifting Eastwards.

The floating island is made primarily out of pumice stone and obsidian as a result of its volcanic origins. As the island’s fauna is extensive and unique, one of the more intriguing species to look out for are the giant tardigrades.

On this floating island exists the indigenous population of Cyclops. Little is known about these people, however scientists are working to understand more about them.

Tchan-Zâca’s political system operates upon the observation of a Fugu fish nest, located in a building 30 meters underneath the central lake.

One of the more singular and noteworthy characteristics of Tchan-Zâca is the natural sounds produced from its cliffs. When the wind is blowing in a certain direction, the cliffs function as organs and deliver 42 different notes that have inspired the Tchan-Zâcien alphabet.

Upon your visit you will be able to visit the Pataphysics campus, the cable-car that moves by avatar power, the cold lake located in the highest volcano, the hot lake located in the smallest volcano, and of course, the museums, art galleries, artist studios, concerts, and awe-inspiring cultural venues. We are pleased to welcome you all to experience Tchan-Zâca!

Roger Haas (Co-founder & CEO)

Roger Haas is ArtMeta’s Co-Founder and CEO. In 2005 Roger founded Haas & Fischer Gallery in Zurich. The gallery represented compelling contemporary artists, including Jonthan Delachaux (ArtMeta's Artistic Director), Chitra Ganesh and Josh Callaghan. Haas & Fischer Gallery participated in the world’s leading art fairs, such as The Armory Show New York, FIAC Paris, Artissima Milano and MACO Mexico.

After 6 years, Roger decided that this traditional gallery model would not work for him any longer and started developing new formats for showing art. Roger produced web based documentary films and generated limited edition artwork series which complimented the film projects, creating a more immersive experience, which later led to the idea of creating an art metaverse.

In 2020, Roger was the acting director of Art Stations Foundation, an institution that runs Muzeum Susch, a contemporary art museum in Switzerland.
