The theme of the 2023 Guyu Art Show is "The Works Left Behind"
With the birth of ChatGPT released by the artificial intelligence research laboratory OpenAI on November 30, 2022, and preceeding with the huge box office success of the new Chinese movie Wandering Earth 2 released on February 9, 2023, various concepts such as metauniverse, AI, extraterrestrial life, dark matter, quantum mechanics and so on have come into people's view. The public has began to worry, and perhaps wonders whether such scientific and technological innovations mean that one day all human work might be fully replaced?
Cooping with AIGC (artificial intelligence generated content) while persisting in creation has become the biggest challenge for contemporary artists. This year, the Guyu team would like to throw out such question as the 2023 Guyu Art Show theme: If AIs one day mature to be able to replace all of your work in the art field, (which will mean) your work will be completely left behind, what will be the last piece of work you create?
As the world continues to change, so does our expression of our consciousness, body and mind. de Kooning inspires us that painting can be a way to explore the changes of our inner world. What about you? How will you portray this changing world?
