Second call for Art Projects for exhibition on Artificial Intelligence

Second call for Art Projects for exhibition on Artificial Intelligence
Aug. 7, 2019

I. AM.AI is the name of IMAGINARY’s new exhibition project aiming to communicate Artificial Intelligence, how it works, and its social impacts, to the public.

The exhibition, supported by the Carl Zeiss Foundation, will open in April 2020. It will feature both new and established research in fields like machine learning, expert systems, general artificial intelligence and more. The exhibition will visit Heidelberg, Mainz and Jena for four months each.

We are looking for engaging art projects which ask critical questions regarding our relationship with AI. Interactive and performative art pieces are just as welcome as visual art, popular art or works of fiction. 

If this sounds exciting to you please send us a short description of what you’re working on to ai@imaginary.org. Links to online examples and videos of your work are very welcome. Please send in your material until the 30th of September.
