The Creative and Disruptive Power of Generative AI in the Art World
When it comes to the art world, disruptive new technologies have historically been a mixed bag. While many innovations have brought about positive changes and creative opportunities, they’ve also disrupted the industry at times. From photography to video and digital printing, artists are constantly adapting to how their work is seen and experienced by others. With the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI), generative algorithms, and other cutting-edge computer technology, this debate around disruption has once again returned to the forefront of discussion. Artificial intelligence has existed for decades in some form or another. Yet only recently have we been able to harness AI in ways that are truly innovative. This type of AI is referred to as Generative AI because it enables machines to generate something with originality – essentially making them capable of creating and recognizing patterns that lead to an output that is not predictable from any given input.

The Art of Barbara Kruger: Iconic Works You Should Know About
In the 1980s, Barbara Kruger began inserting images from fashion magazines and advertising into her artwork. The messages in those images often reflected societal double standards. For example, a woman might be posed in sexually suggestive ways while also being captioned with words that imply she’s incapable of making rational decisions about her body.

Her visual irony can be seen in her paintings, installations, photographs, sculptures, and even video footage—she does not restrict it to any one medium. We’ll explore some of her most iconic works and the meaning behind them.Read more →
