Dread Scott's NFT White Male For Sale, a critique on slavery, to be auctioned off at Christie’s

White Male for Sale, an NFT by the artist and activist Dread Scott that uses the uber-capitalist art form as a form of social critique, will be auctioned off at Christie's Post-War to Present sale on 1 October, in collaboration with Cristin Tierney Gallery. The piece, as the title implies, is a short video of a white man in mundane 21st century work clothing standing on an auction block amidst a pedestrian-trafficked street corner in a predominantly Black neighbourhood in Brooklyn.
