Art. 1 _ Purpose

SOLO AI ‘23 Awards is an open call that aims to foster, acknowledge and support the use of AI as an artistic tool within the paradigm of the digital world.
The new aesthetics and languages of AI are shaping the contemporary art field at an accelerating rate, raising a full range of questions about the present and future of artistic creation. This new human-machine collaboration not only democratises artistic production but also questions its very nature: authorship, originality or creativity are constantly problematised in an artistic practice that combines personal self-expression and collective research. For this reason, SoloJSN, hosted by Colección SOLO, creates SOLO AI ‘23 Awards to encourage artists to expand on and enrich the possibilities around innovative digital art.
SOLO AI will grant one artist the grand price of 10.000 euros to be selected from among 10 finalists eligible for the possibility of taking part in a collective exhibition held at Espacio SOLO (Plaza de la Independencia, 5 Madrid 28001 Spain) between February and December 2023.
