On 20 September, King's Undisciplined Spaces project hosted an AI art exhibition in the Inigo Gallery Rooms of Somerset House. The exhibition was a result of an AI art workshop, hosted by Undisciplined Spaces in collaboration with the Young Foundation and the Lewisham-based Arts Network.
The Arts Network is a charity designed primarily to help people living with severe mental illness. The charity provides the space, materials, and guidance for participants to use art and community to explore their conditions and improve their mental health in a non-clinical environment. The AI art workshop, held at the Network's Lewisham space, provided participants with access to the cutting-edge AI art platform Midjourney. Members were given laptops and pre-paid accounts for two hours. Members then selected two images from what they produced, one to have upscaled and framed for the exhibition and the other to have printed in a smaller version and framed for them to take home. All larger, exhibited prints will be donated to the Art Networks for them to display at their space.
