Happy to share the news about launch of MUTEK AI ART LAB in Montreal that I curate. There’s open call for artists interested in AI and music; AI and visual arts; AI and artistic research - with 10 stipends granted by the City of Montreal.

Partnering for the first time with Zú, MUTEK Montréal invites the collective United Curators to lead the third iteration of their international multidisciplinary laboratory using artificial intelligence in the creation of audiovisual works.
The Montreal MUTEK AI Art Lab takes place in Montreal, Canada, from March 1-10, 2020.

The MUTEK AI Art Lab will gather visual and sound artists, creators, musicians and composers, programmers, researchers, engineers and curators alike to jointly explore the intersection of artificial intelligence and art.
The framework will be guided by lectures and workshops introduced by notable professionals including the Lab curators, Natalia Fuchs ARTYPICAL, Gamma Festival, MUTEK.AE) and Maurice Jones (MUTEK.JP); and Peter Kirn (Create Digital Music, Establishment) as the Lab facilitator, as well as AI experts, new media researchers, seasoned musicians and artists.
The goal is to unpack concepts about artificial intelligence, explore our connections with AI and breakdown stereotypes, but, above all, the project wishes to extend the specialized field of AI to artists and creatives who would like to interact more with this emerging technology and learn about its social and philosophical dimensions. 

The Montreal edition of the Lab draws from the connections and experiences gathered in St-Petersburg (Gamma_LAB AI, Russia, May 2019), and Tokyo (MUTEK.JP AI Music Lab, Japan, November 2019). 

- Ten (10) participants will be selected through this open call;
- Each selected participant will receive a stipend of $1000 each;
- While this call is open to proposals from across the world, five spots are reserved for participants from the City of Montreal;
- This Lab is intended for artists, creators, curators, critics, researchers, engineers,  programmers etc. who have an independent practice or work in the industry sector;
- Applicants should have prior experience with AI, whether theoretical or practical; 
- The precise schedule of the Lab with the list of international experts joining will be released in January 2020;
- Because of its international nature, the Lab will take place in English, with French-speaking facilitators in the room.
