Artists and Robots, an immersive and interactive exhibition to enjoy at the Grand Palais
This is one of the most surprising and unexpected exhibitions to appear this spring. In the National Galleries of the Grand Palais you can see robots create a unique work of art before your eyes, confusing the virtual and the real. From the pioneers of the 1950s to the creators of the digital age, this exhibition presents thirty or so robotic masterpieces that have turned the concept of the work of art into production, exhibition, broadcast, conversation and reception. "From now on, the artist no longer creates a work, he creates the creation," declared the pioneer and visionary cybernetic artist Nicolas Schöffer in 1956 when he unveiled his very first ‘spatiodynamic sculpture’, endowed with an electronic brain connected to sensors responsive to variations in sound and light. It is displayed in the exhibition, Virtual, immersive and interactive, this exhibition explores the role of cybernetics and artificial intelligence in art. As artists continue to experiment with increasingly sophisticated technologies, working in partnership with computer scientists, they will create a new approach to aesthetics that is limited only by the imagination.
