Art-AI Festival is an extended season of exhibitions, public space installations and events taking place across Leicester that focus on creative applications of artificial intelligence.
Led by Professor Tracy Harwood at De Montfort University and curated by Luba Elliott, the festival will showcase the latest developments by world leading artists and researchers from the UK, USA, Canada, India, Croatia and Germany, and illustrate artificial intelligence through chatbots, deepfakes, creative interaction and biomimicry.
Phoenix is a founding partner of the festival, and this year we are hosting Watching (2001: A Space Odyssey; Blade Runner) by Ben Bogart. In this exhibition, these classic sci-fi films have been broken apart and reconstructed in full by an AI programme trained by the artist, creating abstracted dream-like impressions of the originals.
During the festival, we’ll also be presenting monthly film screenings and events about artificial intelligence, from classic science fiction imaginings of AIs gone awry to documentaries that look at the impact of artificial intelligence on the real world.
