This Show is Curated by a Machine

Eligibility:

The Museum of Wild and Newfangled Art (mowna) 

Announces the Debut of an AI Experiment in Art Curation: 

"This Show is Curated by a Machine"

 The free call for international submissions is now open for all to take part in an experiment that defines how we move forward with AI curation in an ethical way

The Museum of Wild and Newfangled Art (mowna) is currently designing an artificial intelligence curator for their final show of the year "This Show is Curated by a Machine" which directly answers the Whitney Museum of American Art's curatorial question, "The Next Biennial Should Be Curated by a Machine."

The curator, an AI bot machine, will learn to curate by looking at the data set from the 2021 mowna Biennial, an exhibit of an international pool of artists selected from 44 countries gathered through a free call for submissions process that ran from January through March of 2021. The Biennial includes all forms of art made from 2019 to 2021. The machine will also learn from other data sets of recently made art.

The AI machine will curate the show by looking at the text data of the submissions as well as the artwork files. There will also be human curators, so that a comparison can be made.

The show will be viewable at mowna.org, and a detailed writeup of the process, results, and thoughts about the future of artificial intelligence related to art curation will be made available. Early questions are available here in the mowna blog: https://www.mowna.org/blog/070121-this-show-is-curated-by-a-machine

"We are interested in creating a machine that can curate in a diverse and ethical way, that is not founded in white supremacy or structures of inherent racism. Much of the art world is affected and effected by both of these issues. So mowna asks, is it possible to create an AI that looks at the art and curates with diversity, equity and inclusion? It is important to build this machine now, before other big tech companies design algorithms that erase the artist and define AI curation." ~cari ann shim sham*, Co-founder and Curator of mowna.

"This Show is Curated by a Machine" marks the third online art experience by mowna, the first being its Opening Show now available to members in the mowna collection, and the second being the current exhibit, the 2021 mowna Biennial. The Biennial is mowna’s direct response to the gap in the art world seen after the coronavirus pandemic, and showcased art of all mediums that otherwise would’ve gone unseen. Tickets to the Biennial will be available until the show closes on September 22nd, and are sliding scale pay what you wish, after which "This Show is Curated by a Machine" will be installed and available for online viewing.

Artists may submit up to 10 works of art per submission and artists will be paid 70% of ticket and membership sales from the show, with the other 30% paying for the creation of the platform. There is no submission fee to apply, and all mediums of art are welcome by all people from all countries. The works must have been completed after January 1, 2020. The deadline for submissions is August 20, 2021 at 12 PM ET.

As the global community continually moves further into a multi-faceted technological way of life, the way art, across all mediums, is consumed, has been changing in ways to make art more accessible while remaining true to the integrity of all genres. mowna recognized this growing, transformational need pre-pandemic which catalyzed the formation and birth of the Museum of Wild and Newfangled Art  to meet the ever-growing needs of an ever-changing art world.

mowna is at the center of the exponentially changing art world and makes it their priority to showcase art from all walks of life. With a mix of what is familiar and unfamiliar, patrons will see artists who've been curated by the Whitney or the MoMA along with artists available only on mowna.

"This Show is Curated by a Machine" will run from September 23, 2021 through January 31, 2022 at mowna.org.

mowna exists to provide an international online platform for the most timely, diverse, and preeminent artists.

Open Call for Submissions - Fall 2021

Eligibility:

Flora Fiction is looking for artists, writers, poets, photographers, illustrators, and others to be featured for Volume 2 Issue 3, Fall 2021 online literary magazine set to release the first day of Fall on September 22nd, 2021. We’re inspired by you and would love to see what you have to offer. Please check out our previous issues for reference of work we’ve published. If your style and content fits with us, send away!

Theme: Hauntings

Haunting(s). There are those we left behind and those who leave us behind. Moving on and growing is bittersweet. Often, we feel the shadows of our past linger. Does this help or harm us? If so, how?

Possession and control are such intoxicating forces that we may find ourselves consumed with a haunting of a person, idea, or memory. We are all influenced by factors outside our control. Do we (at times) embody the things that haunt us? How does possession play against reality?

  • Flash Fiction / 1,000 words
  • Poetry & Prose / Limit: 3 poems
  • Photography / Limit: 5 Photos
  • Drawings & Illustration / Limit: 5 items

Submissions are open from July 25th, 2021 until August 31st, 2021
