Dear Friends of Generative Art,
We are at the 23rd Generative Art conferences and I like to thank all the participants of the last editions, participants from many different countries of all continents because they have succeeded in supporting GA as the worldwide reference conference in the sector of the generative approach. This with their interesting contributions that were not only academic papers but work in progress able to define the real state of the art of the Generative Thinking.
Not only, but the discussions, the exchanges of experience, and the working together for reaching advanced possibilities was also the unique feeling of these meetings.

As the other years, the conference will run for three days with only a plenary session. The reason is that this unique session gives to all participants the possibility of best knowing one each other and to discuss all together.
The conference will run the 15th, 16th and 17st of December 2020 as a virtual conference at METID, Politecnico di Milano Italy
We will wait for Your proposals (papers, posters, artworks/installations, live performances) until 30th of September 2019 and we are sure that with your contributions GA2019 will be, once more, a moment of great exchange of experiences and an occasion of meeting people working with the same approach in a wide range of different disciplines.

Type of contribution:

  • Papers and Posters to be presented the 3 days of the conference in only one main session
  • Artworks, Installations, Performances, and Posters to be presented in the days of the conference./spanstyle="font-size:>

Generative Art performs the idea as a process. Moving the creativity from Objects/Events to Codes, GA builds the contemporary complex natural/artificial environment. Generative Algorithms and Transforming Rules realize as natural DNA does, always different and unpredictable series of events, artworks, industrial objects, architectures, music, environment, communications, software, and hardware devices, all recognizable by each generative creative concept.
Generative Art is identifiable as one of the most advanced approaches in the creative and design world. It performs the incoming new naturality of the artificial world. Generative Projects, Morphogenetic Design, Evolutionary Systems can design the species of incoming events, their identity in progress, the recognizability of each possibly generated object, the complexity of the contemporary world, spaces, communications, and music.
In Architecture GA can increase the identity and uniqueness of each city, performing generative codes that can be used in designing the incoming transforming paths of each town.
In Industrial Design GA performs the relation between intelligent industrial production and advanced design ideas of new naturality.
In Visual Art, Literature and GA performs the relation between intelligent industrial production and advanced design ideas of new naturality.
The generative approach represents the way to carry out the idea as a product, and not only the artifact-product-piece as the unique representation of the idea.

Generative Art Conference is a meeting place to exchange ideas, theoretical approaches, operative, and teaching experiences, and to value the innovative field of intelligent industrial production and business that belongs to the Generative approach.
Following the experience of last years, people can show their innovative works in the concurrent GA Performance Festival that will be held on the evening of the same days of the conference. This will be an opportunity to show and enjoy the most advanced mix of generative entertainment media.
