Join the conversation between a group of young people, artists and curators working with AI; Luba Elliot, Anna Ridler, and Birgitte Aga, Coral Manton and Mike Phillips from the i-DAT Collective.
With the evolution of AI (Artificial Intelligence) as a ubiquitous cultural force, there is an emergent debate about the role of AI in art, and its validity as art. AI in ART attempts to extend this conversation to examine to the role of art practice in engaging the public in a wider debate around the future impact of AI on the individual and the society as a whole.
The event brings together artists and curators working with AI for a conversation with a group of teenagers who have been prototyping AI art as part of intensive summer workshops with artist collective i-DAT. The participants will present their work and be interrogated by the group of young people who will ask the kinds of questions we wouldn’t think of, or dare to ask. In shaping their future these conversations will explore their artificial cultural inheritance.
The event is organised by the i-DAT Collective with a group of young people, in partnership with FACT and KARST.
The project is funded by Arts Council England and the University of Plymouth as part of the Infinite Guide Project.
