“Digital Serendipity” exhibition explores the phenomenon of artificial neural networks within the language of new media art and internet culture. The project considers Artificial Intelligence as a tool and philosophical concept, and analyzes its impact on contemporary art and culture as well as human and society. It presents both projects of the world stars of new media art and young artists experimenting at the intersection of art and technology along with the projects created by coders, researchers and Machine Learning enthusiasts.

Mass culture offers a popular image of singularity, wherein strong Artificial Intelligence, humanity’s antagonist, is trying to overcome and go beyond the imperfect and obsolete human brain. However, today’s weak AI is in fact a significantly more ethically and politically complex phenomenon than the one presented in mass culture.

Due to their diversity and versatility, modern Artificial Intelligence becomes not only a tool applied in science and business, healthcare and education, but it’s widely used in art, design and music. It helps us to discover new planets and drugs as well as the new aesthetics.

At the same time, machine-learning algorithms have a number of limitations and so-called biases that they can learn from data. Despite this, Artificial Intelligence is already forming feedback loops, affecting what happens in the physical world, as well as becoming a tool for various forms of so-called algorithmic control.

The exhibition will bring together various approaches to working with Artificial Intelligence in the field of new media art: from the study of the aesthetics of neural networks, to a critical understanding of their impact on the modern world, as well as projects at the intersection of art and innovation, expanding our understanding of the role of modern technologies.

The show will be accompanied by a public program: curatorial tours, artist talks and panels.
