ioneers of AI Art: London Exhibition 2024 | HOFA Gallery & Fellowship AI

HOFA Gallery, in collaboration with the Fellowship AI platform, proudly presents “New Beginnings,” an innovative London exhibition showcasing the evolution of AI artistry and its intersection with human experience. Running from April 11th to April 30th, 2024, this groundbreaking exhibition, curated in partnership with AI art experts Crysalis, brings together 14 globally renowned AI artists.

The exhibition features works by notable artists such as Niceaunties, Sougwen Chung, Emily Xie, Agoria, and Elman Mansimov, each exploring the profound implications of AI on art and human interaction. From April 11th to April 30th, 2024, visitors will have the opportunity to experience the transformative power of AI-generated art at HOFA Gallery.

Elio D’Anna, Co-founder of HOFA Gallery, comments, “With the emergence of new AI models and techniques in 2023, we witnessed a profound technological evolution. ‘New Beginnings’ captures this transition by presenting major works conceived and produced in the post-transition period, juxtaposed with early era AI creations of immense significance. It effectively narrates the evolution of AI-generated artistry while redefining contemporary perceptions of art in the digital age.”

“New Beginnings” showcases a diverse spectrum of mediums and methodologies, reflecting AI’s journey and its dual role as both inspiration and instrument in the artistic process. The selected artists are at the forefront of integrating AI technologies with creative expression, pushing the boundaries of artistic innovation.

Show Highlights:

  • Niceaunties: A Singapore-based architect and AI artist exploring themes of aging, personal freedom, and everyday life through generative AI and digital art.
  • Sougwen Chung: A Chinese-Canadian artist recognized for her pioneering work in human-machine collaboration. Chung’s piece, “MEMORY (Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 2),” holds the distinction of being the first AI model acquired by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
  • Emily Xie: A New York-based artist utilizing algorithms to create lifelike textures and forms, navigating the delicate balance between chance and control.
  • Agoria: Celebrated for his avant-garde BioGenArt, Agoria presents “I Feel Good,” a cinematic exploration of the complex relationship between AI and humanity.
  • Elman Mansimov: A Senior Applied Scientist known for pioneering research in AI, Mansimov’s work has been compared to the revolutionary impact of the first fixed photographs in the 1820s.

Founded in 2012, HOFA Gallery specializes in curating contemporary artworks that blend traditional techniques with digital innovation. Similarly, Fellowship aims to shape the future of art by leveraging blockchain technology to introduce art to a new generation of collectors.

Sunny Cheung, overseeing Design & Architecture curation at M+, Asia’s first global museum of contemporary visual culture, remarks, “The recent advancements in AI and generative art processes often feel like magic. Through this exhibition, we explore this magic in AI’s evolution and its impact on creative practices. With vast data flows and virtualization, artists can draw from lived experiences to create new meanings.”

He adds, “Like all great relationships, we don’t necessarily know where the relationship with AI and art is heading, but we are excited by the new possibilities that come with New Beginnings.”
