Les robots sont-ils des artistes ? Réponse au Grand Palais
by AFP

"Are robots like other artists?" This is one of the questions that raises, with many others questions, a disturbing and spectacular exhibition at the Grand Palais about irruption of algorithms in artistic creation.

What is a robotic art work? "An artistic production via an artificial system endowed with a certain autonomy of creation", explains Jérôme Neutres, curator of the exhibition with Laurence Bertrand Dorléac.

Designing "creative" machines isn’t a new fact. In 1971, for the first monographic computer exhibition of history, the pioneer, Manfred Mohr presented paintings based on the hypercube concept at the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris.
