Presentation of the Exhibition

ART AFTER AI

Zane Cerpina, Stahl Stenslie (Norway)

The "Art After AI" exhibition explores the profound challenges, effects, and transformative shifts that AI brings to the realm of art. The exhibition revolves around four primary themes: "AI Is Not Indigenous" examines the influence of AI on traditional and tribal modes of perception and artistic creation, shedding light on the ways in which AI disrupts established paradigms. "Art Beyond Mortality" explores how deceased artists can continue their creative output through the utilization of AI, thereby transcending the boundaries of life and death. "Genetic Artistry" showcases the symbiotic relationship between AI and gene editing within native populations, manifesting how AI aids in the experimentation with and evolution of visual expression. "Silent Narratives" investigates how survivors of sexual assault are depicted through the eyes of AI, offering a poignant commentary on silenced voices and representation. To further connect visitors to the current debate about the use of AI in the arts, they are invited to take a free copy from a stack of free, give-away posters on the floor. The poster has the AI Movement Manifesto on one side, and the Open Letter Against AI on the other. The selected works are also represented in the latest edition of the EE journal – Experimental and Emerging Art. A free download is available at www.eejournal.no
