Today, content creation is a pervasive and habitual aspect of contemporary culture. Computers and smartphones have dramatically altered communication methods and democratized a user’s ability to create and distribute content at scale. Artificial Imagination approaches the role of machine learning within art through a spotlight on DALL·E, an AI system that generates imagery from language. DALL·E has turned computer assisted art creation into a worldwide trend, expanding artistic curiosity and imagination. Artificial Imagination features a variety of works by prominent artists and technologists, some of whom have never created art prior to experiments with DALL·E. Exhibited works include entire compositions developed with DALL·E, generative pieces made with custom algorithms, and a range of mixed media works. The exhibition seeks to contextualize AI as an art-making apparatus, similar to those that have already entered the canon of art history. Featured artists include Refik Anadol, Suhail Doshi, August Kamp, Ellie Pritts, Alexander Reben, Siebren Versteeg, Fang Yuan, and Marina Zurkow. Open Tue-Sat 11am - 6pm
