Curated by Artificial Intelligence
In 2023 Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University embarked on an experiment to use AI to curate an exhibition from the museum’s collection. This was, to our knowledge, the first time a museum has done so.
While museum professionals are far from relinquishing control of exhibition making and interpretation, this exercise was a powerful way to explore the applications of AI in the creative realm as related to curatorial authorship and expertise, the subjectivity of the selection process, and the future impact of technology on museums.
