Join a special preview and artist talks for two new exhibitions at QUT Art Museum that explore relationships between humans, creativity and the machine; Why future still needs us: AI and humanity and Machination. These shows officially open on Sunday 20 August in conjunction with Robotronica, QUT's free public Robotics and technology spectacular at Gardens Point campus.
An Art Center Nabi (Korea) touring exhibition, Why future still needs us: AI and humanity speakers include Soh Yeong Roh and Doo Eun Choi, Director and Chief Curator at the Art Center Nabi, as well as Maurice Benayoun, Artist and Professor of Creative Media, City University Hong Kong. They discuss the evolving role of artificial intelligence as both a creator and an amplified collaborator, which can learn by itself and work beyond the existing modes of human-machine interaction, raising questions about humanity in a future machine age.
Cake Industries experimental artist duo Jesse Stevens and Dean Petersen also discuss Machination. Harking back to the 1950s, a time when our electronic journey started in earnest, this surreal exhibition features performative mechatronic sculptures which combine human/object hybrid forms with collaged archival video and sound, offering a new perspective on our own world.
This event is part of the Art Suite Events; a series of free monthly events at QUT Art Museum and William Robinson Gallery, presented in proud partnership with Art Series Hotel Group.
