The Next Evolution of The Arts

Hybrid Hybrid Event

October 4, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 8:30 pm

Immersive technology is revolutionizing the arts by opening up boundless creative possibilities. They can seamlessly blend the digital and physical worlds for a whole new look at the term blank canvas. Visual artists are crafting digital pieces that transcend three dimensions. Theater directors are transporting audiences into new realms. Musicians are immersing listeners in interactive soundscapes. These technologies enable artists to transcend traditional boundaries and the result is a redefinition of artistic expression, captivating audiences and pushing the frontiers of creativity. Yet, this transformative power also brings crucial ethical and legal questions surrounding intellectual property rights, urging the arts to navigate uncharted territory in a rapidly evolving landscape.

The bridge between art and technology is often a divided one. With AI mimicking people’s styles from images to writing to likenesses in films, today we possess a great opportunity to discuss the feelings and expectations we have when it comes to technology’s influences on the creation of artwork. Art is forever changing due to technology including augmented reality and virtual reality and beyond. 

VRAR Chicago and The Next Evolution | AWE Nite Chicago are committed to educating and sharing information about technologies so no one is left behind during The Next Evolution through Immersive and other emerging technologies. Join us October 4th to explore the incredible potential of immersive technology’s impact on The Arts while unraveling the complex ethical and legal threads that underpin this journey.
