May 6, 2024


On May 6, join artists Simon Bouisson and Minne Atairu along with Kyle Chayka of The New Yorker as they explore new avenues for artistic and creative expression through AI, as part of Villa Albertine’s Art in the Age of AI event.

What does AI teach us about the creative process? What will remain as pure creations once AI has automated certain tasks? What or who is considered a genius in an AI-powered world? This engaging panel discussion will center on how AI can assist artists by offering new dimensions of creative expression and innovation.
