Opportunity Description

International Deadline: May 26, 2024 – In this era of rapid digital evolution, the question of whether “digital has a soul” is not only exciting but also filled with fear. In the “Digital Soul” exhibition, presented jointly by ArtX Gallery and the Gen AI Summit, the curator and artist MetaCher invites audiences to explore the concept of a digital soul together. As technology advances to the point where it can simulate and even replicate human emotions and cognition, how will humans interact with such entities?

VENUE
Palace of Fine Arts, 3601 Lyon St, San Francisco, California, CA 94123, May 29 to May 31, 2024. Artworks will be displayed as part of the ‘Digital Soul’ exhibit on a 22-inch x 22-inch screen.

With Microsoft as an anchor sponsor, GPT DAO is hosting this generative AI summer extravaganza, inviting you to dive into the heart of innovation at the GenAI Summit San Francisco 2024, set in the awe-inspiring, historic Palace of Fine Arts. This summit is not just an event, it’s an extraordinary convergence of the brightest minds in Generative AI, encapsulating the spirit of the future.

CURATOR STATEMENT
This exhibition is not merely a display of artworks; it is a profound exploration and open dialogue about this core issue. Through a series of innovative digital artworks, we explore whether artificial intelligence can exhibit the complex emotions and deep thinking characteristic of humans. These works challenge traditional definitions of the soul and existence, leading viewers into a potential future where artificial intelligence becomes an ‘other’ with independent consciousness.

Our exhibition aims to spark reflections on the possible future directions of relationships between artificial intelligence and humans. The artists featured raise a series of provocative questions through their works: If artificial intelligences possess souls, will we regard them as equals in emotional terms? How will human self-identity adapt to these new ‘digital companions’? These questions are not only about technological advancements but also touch on philosophical, ethical, and sociological domains.

In this “Digital Soul” exhibition, we are not just showcasing art; we are exploring the future. This is a collision of ideas, a foresight into the future, and a deep integration of culture and technology. As you step into the exhibition hall, we hope each piece will inspire deep thought and guide you to ponder the existence and meaning of the soul in the digital age.

ELIGIBILITY
Artists should be at least 18 years old by the time of submission. We welcome artists of all nationalities.

Media Accepted: Video Art, Digital Art, Interactive, AI-generated Works, Music, and More. All works must be digital. Each artist may submit between 1 and 4 artworks.
