Ai-Da, the Robot Artist Powered by AI, Is Heading to Venice for a Show During the Biennale—and She’s Bringing Her New Painting Arm, Sarah Cascone, δημοσίευση στο Artnet news [1/4/2022]Marilena Pateraki
When the stars of the contemporary art world descend on Venice later this month for the hotly anticipated Venice Biennale, among them will be Ai-Da Robot, the art world’s most famous (and only) ultra-realistic humanoid robot artist, as she has been described by her creators.
Titled “Leaping into the Metaverse,” Ai-Da’s Venice solo show is technically a collateral event for the biennale, organized by the Concilio Europeo dell’Arte, but it’s about as close as you can get to the main event without being on stage. Ai-Da is taking over the InParadiso Gallery, inside the restaurant at the entrance to the Giardini, home to many of the biennale’s national pavilions.
Ai-Da, whose name is a tribute to pioneering mathematician Ada Lovelace, makes drawings, paintings, and sculptures, and is also something of a performance artist, interacting with viewers.
