AI and Art – a Symbiotic Vision

Updated: 5 hours ago


The exhibition "AI and Art. A symbiotic vision" was part of the call 100 Jahre Kunst im Traklhaus. This special programme was introduced to mark the 50 year anniversary of state owned Gallery "Kunst im Traklhaus". The gallery was looking for modern exhibition concepts for this special space named after the Austrian poet Georg Trakl, who is considered one of the most important Austrian expressionists.


The exhibition aims to explore the interface between AI and art and enable the public to experience artworks on both an analogue and digital level.

Following the development of the exhibition concept by D#AVANTGARDE, positions for this exhibition were sought in an open call that was curated by Stephanie Meisl and David Fisslthaler – the positions shown were selected from around 100 international submissions.



The works and artists on display differ greatly in their approach and expression, but there is a unifying element: the exhibition aims to explore and illustrate the possibilities that arise from the combination of artistic creation, artificial intelligence (AI) and new media. So it's not just about criticising the use of AI – the exhibition focuses on works that integrate AI into their creative process and use it as a cooperation partner to show a creative dialogue between artists and AI, using classic and new media as a means of expression.


The goal of the exhibition is to question and understanding of the roles of AI and creativity, to enrich discussions and opinions about the role of AI in art, and to explore the possibilities and limitations of this technology.

This ranges from the integration of AI into the creative process and collaborations between artists and AI to the reinterpretation of existing works. The positions on display range from classic media to moving images and interactive installations.




The exhibition was accompanied by a series of events: from a keynote by Merzmensch and artist talks (with both the artists and external speakers) to workshops and performances, with additional guided tours trough the show as well as 'art walks' to other exhibitions in the area – we were very honored to cooperate with the Zwergerlgartenpavillon der Stadtgalerien Salzburg and Mozarteum University to enable some of these events.



In this contribution to anniversary of the Kunstraum im Traklhaus, we wanted to explore and map the possibilities that arise from the connection between artistic creation, artificial intelligence (AI) and new media. The exhibition focused on works by contemporary artists who integrate AI into their creative process and use it as a cooperation partner. 


The exhibition was curated by Stephanie Meisl and David Fisslthaler and organised in a collaboration between D#AVANTGARDE, Kunst im Traklhaus and Land Salzburg.
