The John B. Aird Gallery is proud to present an exhibition titled BURDENS by Toronto-based artist Adrienne Trent, curated by the Gallery’s director, Carla Garnet. The solo show features work from Trent’s multi-disciplinary practice and will be on view in the Gallery from February 3rd to March 28th, 2024.
Using AI algorithms to create imagery, Adrienne Trent opens up new blendings of her past images with AI-generated imagery. Or, in the artist’s words, “My attempt to replicate this 2-dimensional, digitally generated image by building the plaster work on rebar, I am effectively using AI in reverse by employing a 7000-year-old traditional sculptural material, plaster. With all of the fear around artificial intelligence, replacing actual flesh and blood artists or infringing on copyright laws, I like to point out that I feel AI may be a useful tool”.
