Generative AI is emerging as the latest technology to disrupt the arts, design, and media fields. How are creative faculty responding, sometimes in unexpected ways? This webinar brings together working artists, educators, researchers, and technologists to discuss how they are exploring AI from diverse perspectives – ethically, creatively, and productively.

This panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Yvonne Houy, the Editor of Tradition-Innovations in Art, Design, and Media Higher Education. The inaugural edition of this new a2ru peer-reviewed digital journal – out in late Fall 2023 – will focus on Artificial Intelligence and possible futures for the Arts.

Treehouse Zine celebrates third issue with community-based release party
By Justin Brosemer

Eliana Gelman, a cognitive science major at UGA and editor-in-chief for Treehouse, founded the zine in hopes of strengthening Athens’ artistic community. She believes that zines have the ability to bring people together, whether to create or showcase art.

Gelman began Treehouse with the support of the UGA Arts Collaborative, an interdisciplinary initiative for advanced research in the arts.

“Working with the Arts Collaborative has looped us into a network of other Athens creatives who are willing to have conversations about things that have or have not been working for them,” Gelman said. “It’s just been really great to have a sort of mentorship there.”

Gallery Talk with Haolin and Jiayi
Friday, September 29 at noon

Expression of the Superorganism is an exhibition of visual art created by Red Imported Fire Ants in collaboration with artist Jiayi Guo and biologist Haolin Zeng. In the seemingly boundless expression of the superorganism, art created by ants features a post-humanist element, where the aesthetic dimension of being for humans and ants is one of cooperation rather than conflict.

Expression of the Superorganism is supported in part by the UGA Arts Collaborative, an interdisciplinary initiative for advanced research in the arts.
