Artebinaria is thrilled to present “Five Masterpieces Reimagined: Art Interpreted by AI,” a cutting-edge exhibition that invites the audience to immerse themselves in artworks created by artificial intelligence, viewable through augmented reality using the “Artinside Gallery +” app.
This remarkable journey into the world of AI-generated images, inspired by 5 masterpieces from art history, was conceived by Alessandro Bemporad and brought to life by Artebinaria. The goal is to provoke deep reflection on the role of new technologies in art and the enhancement of artistic and cultural heritage.
Under the expert guidance of art historian and artistic director of Artebinaria, Maddalena Grazzini, this exhibition opens up new horizons for how technology can embrace art, culture, and creativity in unprecedented ways.
The augmented reality pavilion’s rooms become a unique space where 5 past masterpieces meet artificial intelligence, challenging conventions and inspiring fundamental questions. In each room, four works created by artificial intelligence are displayed, accompanied by a 3D reproduction of one of the five masterpieces from art history.
The five masterpieces by the Great Masters include Leonardo da Vinci’s “Ginevra de’ Benci”, Jan Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid”, Frans Hals’ “Portrait of a Woman”, Berthe Morisot’s “The Reading”, and Auguste Renoir’s “Two Girls at the Piano,” all reinterpreted by artificial intelligence under the guidance of the art director, who suggested styles, eras, and tones for their reinterpretation.
“Five Masterpieces Reimagined: Art Interpreted by AI,” is the first of a series of augmented reality exhibitions where AI takes center stage. Organized by Artebinaria and hosted on Artinside Gallery, these monthly exhibitions offer a unique opportunity to reflect on the deep connections between the past and future, tradition and innovation, and the ever-evolving role of art in our society.
Our exhibition journey for the “Five Masterpieces Reimagined: Art Interpreted by AI” unfolds through five virtual rooms within a Pavilion. Each room offers a unique perspective on artistic reinterpretations inspired by iconic artworks, inviting visitors to explore the connection between art and artificial intelligence through augmented reality.
Let’s embark on our tour:
Room 1 – Ginevra de’ Benci Reimagined
Here, four unique artworks come to life, each inspired by a different era and artistic style. This collection takes you on a timeless journey through artistic interpretation, with Leonardo da Vinci’s original masterpiece at its core. From the allure of Flemish Renaissance art to a futuristic take with elements inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, from the grace of the Pre-Raphaelites to a Klimt-inspired version of Ginevra.
Room 2 – Beyond “Jan Vermeer’s Milkmaid”
The artworks in this room draw inspiration from Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid”, and range from a prehistoric setting to a Dadaist and surreal tone, ultimately reaching a fully futuristic interpretation.
Room 3 – Frans Hals’ Portrait of a Woman Reimagined
This room celebrates the AI’s reinterpretations of Frans Hals’ “Portrait of a Woman.” The images offer a unique perspective on the portrait, ranging from a medieval reinterpretation through the Renaissance and culminating in a Symbolist aesthetic.
Room 4 – Berthe Morisot’s “The Reading” Reinterpreted
In this room, the AI reinterprets Berthe Morisot’s masterpiece “The Reading” across different temporal contexts. From the tranquil countryside setting to the subdued light of a Caravaggesque interior, and all the way to the whimsy and irreverence of Dadaism and the futuristic world.
Room 5 – Renoir’s “Two Girls at the Piano” Reimagined
In this room, the AI reimagines Auguste Renoir’s “Two Girls at the Piano,” creating an artwork in a 17th-century context and three others immersed in the digital realm, envisioning a vibrant science fiction future.
Each AI-generated artwork is accompanied by an informative card, enriched with comments written directly by the AI itself. This element enhances the visitor’s experience, allowing them to better understand and appreciate the creation before them.
In conclusion, we invite you to download the “Artinside Gallery+” app, and explore our Pavilion in augmented reality to witness these artworks come to life before your eyes and compare them with the original masterpiece that inspired the AI under the guidance of Artebinaria’s art director.
We are eager to hear your impressions and comments on this artificial fusion of art and technology.
