Is Artificial Intelligence the Future of Art?

Thursday May 30th 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

The National Arts Club 15 Gramercy Park S, New York, New York 10003

On October 25, 2018, a major auction house offered a work of art created by Artificial Intelligence (AI) for sale. The painting sold for an astonishing $350,000. Did the sale reflect the draw of a singular moment—the first time an AI painting was up for auction—or did it reflect a pivotal turning point for the art market and art history, a bet that AI is the future of art?

Join speakers from the art world and academia to explore questions such as: What is creativity? What is originality? and Who or what can make art?

Event Speakers:

— Ahmed Elgammal, Professor, Computer Science, Rutgers University and Director of the Art and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
— Lindsay Griffith, International Head of Contemporary Editions, Christie’s
