$HT Coin, the latest project from “White Male Artist” — a transgender, Canadian-American performance artist and Guggenheim Award winner otherwise known as Cassils — is unquestionably art.

It’s also far from conventional. Inspired by Piero Manzoni’s famous Merda D'Artista (Artist’s Shit) from 1961, a controversial piece that featured tin cans filled with the artist’s feces as a critique on consumerism, Cassils’ new take on the concept speaks to sexism and racism within the art community and the cryptocurrency world.

It also addresses how NFTs are impacting the art market. For the project, Cassils has taken Manzoni’s concept to the proverbial next level.
