Presented by The Upside Space.
Following the release of text-to-image models such as DALL-E 2 and Midjourney this summer, many discussions surrounding authorship and authenticity in the age of AI have resurfaced. This exhibition responds to these rising concerns by bringing artists who utilise AI as part of their iterative process and as narrative building tools, collaborating with AI without resigning agency over to the pre-trained models. These artists are: Rimbawan Gerilya, Jo Ho, Billie Sng, Ninaad Kothawade, and Chong Yan Chuah. These works also range from using text-to-image generation, language generation models (such as GPT-3) and generative adversarial network (GAN) models, to illustrate the wide-ranging possibilities that AI as an area of technology can offer. With this, the exhibition hopes to provide more concrete shape and form to what “AI art” can look like, and begin to unpack the multitude and complexities of what relationships can be formed with the machine, and contribute to the growing lexicon surrounding AI and art in our collective consciousness.
