C’est quoi, 0xSociety ?
0x Society is a Canadian non profit dedicated to enabling the digital art renaissance by promoting, diffusing and supporting the crypto art movement. 💎
We opened the first crypto art gallery in Canada, offering not only highly curated in-person and virtual exhibitions, but also thorough educational content with 0x Academy and generous grant programs for artists.
I’m interested in visiting your crypto art gallery, can I get more information?
The entrance is free and we also have a lounge where you can grab drinks with your friends.
We are located at 950, rue Ottawa, on the historic site of New City Gas, in Montreal.

What is your grants program and how can I apply?
The goal of our grants program is to help artists create their first NFT and navigate this industry.
This grant is for Canadian artists only and includes many perks: an invitation to Foundation NFT marketplace, a crypto art mentor, seminars, a week-end long exhibition at our Montreal Gallery, and the payment of all of your listing and minting fees for the NFT you create.
Each edition lasts for two months, at the end of which artists will be invited to present their NFT at our gallery in Montreal.
To apply to the next edition, please send your art portfolio and social media links to email@example.com

Do you have parking on-site?
There is street parking or underground parking at these locations:

What is the hardware used to display the artworks?
The artworks in our gallery are displayed on commercial 55” screens. They carry a built-in processor to render the highest quality. Each piece is further calibrated to its own colours, textures and tones to offer our visitors the ultimate experience of the digital artwork.
How often will you change the artwork?
Every 2 months, we present a new curated and themed crypto art exhibition.
For the grants program, do you accept artists from other countries?
At the moment, we only accept Canadian artists in the grants program. As a Canadian non profit, our main goal is to give back to our community and we thought the grants program was a good way to do so.
However, our exhibitions feature artists from all around the globe.
How can my work be exhibited at your gallery?
Every 2 months, we launch a new themed show where we handpick 12 artists whose artistic style fits the exhibition's aesthetic.
When selecting artists, we look for a variety of criterias:
- Style and aesthetic
- Quality of the work
- Floor price and number of NFTs sold to date
- Background and reputation
- Collector base
- Presence on NFT marketplaces
If you’re interested in being part of a future exhibition, feel free to send us your portfolio at firstname.lastname@example.org. To be considered, your application must also include your social media links and your profiles on NFT marketplaces.
Where are you located?
We are based in Montreal, Canada and our crypto art gallery is located at 950, rue Ottawa.
Why did you choose 0x Society for your name?
« 0x » is the prefix to all Ethereum addresses, which is necessary to buy NFTs. This prefix is used in code language to indicate that a number is written in Hexadecimal format, which is a system of numerical notation where the base is 16 instead of 10.
The term « Society » comes from Société Anonyme, which was founded in 1920 by French painter Marcel Duchamp. Duchamp fought for the acceptance of modern art for his whole life, just as we are fighting for the acceptance of digital art. We also wanted 0x Society to feel like a community or a collective for artists and collectors to connect in the physical world.
How much does it cost to visit the gallery?
Do you sell NFTs?
NFTs on display at the gallery can be purchased from the artist directly on the NFT marketplaces used by the artists. We showcase their work, but we don’t sell them to you directly at the gallery. You will need to create a marketplace account first as a collector, and then buy cryptocurrency (ether) to purchase an NFT. We can definitely assist you with this procedure.
How did this whole project get started?
When we first got into NFTs back in early 2021, we felt like the community was so small in Montreal! We wanted to help our friends, family, as well as artists and collectors understand what NFTs were.
That’s when we launched 0x Academy (link in bio), a free resource to learn everything about NFTs. A couple months later, we had the chance to partner with New City Gas and Produkt to open the first NFT gallery in Canada!
Of course, it wasn’t as simple as that, but we consider ourselves very lucky to be surrounded and supported by so many great people. We now have 4 employees helping us and we can’t wait to grow this community even more!
