Automating Art: The Good & Bad of
Technology in Art Making
Tuesday, May 3
Join us for a lively cross-disciplinary conversation that questions the rising influence of AI and autonomy on the art world. This is the second installment of Art & AI lectures from CMU hosted at City of Asylum, following a rousing discussion of ethics and creativity in November 2021. You will have a unique opportunity to ask questions from experts at the top of their field.
