GA2024, the 27th Generative Art Conference, Exhibition, Live Performances

Future Visions on Past Steps

The location is in Venice, Italy, at the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe, Castello 4930, 30122 Venice.
The dates are the 17th, 18th, and 19th of December 2024.
  • Humanity & AI. The theme of this conference focuses on how to preserve the human complexity, with Generative Art and AI.
  • Art, poetry, music, architecture, and historic cities need generative ideas for their adaptation to the deep new demands of our fast-changing time.
  • Our field of interest is to identify these possibilities and relate the most advanced creative approaches of Generative Art and AI. This is why the 27th Conference on Generative Art is supported by the Italian National Commission for UNESCO and hosted by the UNESCO Regional Office for Science and Culture in Europe.
  • We will be happy to present your generative approach. This can be done through generative ideas that could safeguard specific identities of Art, Nature, Environments and History.
  • Art&Science - Generative AI - Image&Space - Music&Poetry - Visionary Scenarios - Infinity&Identity
    After 26 years of GA conferences, the generative and AI approaches are finally running in our everyday lives. So we will be happy if we will discuss this.
    This year the conference will run not only in presence and we will try to plan also an exhibition of your artworks in a GA metaverse. A session of Voices of poetry will run during the persormance session. (
    XXVII GA Conference is organized by ARGENIA Association.
    If you would like to share your scientific and creative work and your generative art and design experiences with us, please send us an abstract for a proposal of paper, artwork, installation, poster, and/or live performances (the template is on the website

    Dear Friends of Generative Art,
    We are at the 27th Generative Art Conferences and I would like to thank all the participants in the past editions coming 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 Generative Thinking.
    Not only, the discussions, the exchanges of experience, and the working together for reaching advanced possibilities was also the unique feeling of these meetings.
    This year we will meet in Venice, at UNESCO, and we will focus our papers on the Ideas for beauty surviving and we hope that you will present the advanced ideas for using at the best your generative approach.

    Story and Peculiarities of Generative Art Conferences
    Born in 1998, the annual Generative Art conferences are the international leading meetings involving researchers, Ph.D. and creative people performing generative advanced approaches. As in the 26 previous annual conferences, our choice is to have ONLY ONE MAIN SESSION (3 days) with around 40 paper presentations (in presence and, only if necessary, online); an exhibition with posters and artworks in a metaverse; some installations and generative live-performances, whose movies will be also published in the website of the conference. This is because we like to increase the possibilities of knowing each other, exchanging experiences, and crossing opinions. We don't like parallel sessions and all accepted people will be like KEYNOTE SPEAKERS, scheduled in ONLY ONE MAIN SESSION. More than 1000 papers, artworks, and live performances presented at previous conferences are on the GA website: for a free consultation.
    The DEADLINE for sending your proposals (abstracts of papers, posters, artworks, installations, live performances) is the 3rd of September 2024 and we are sure that, with your contributions, GA2024, the 27th Generative Art meeting, will be, once more, a place where ideas, results, and opinions will be exchanged and where knowing people working with similar design approaches, in a wide range of different disciplines, will be possible.
    We are working to organize these three days of the conference to maximize the knowledge and exchange of opinions among the participants and also for experimenting with new possibilities of technology, like Generative AI focused also in the 2D and 3D environments.

    Type of contribution:

    • Papers to be presented the 3 days of the conference in only one main session
    • Live Performances to be presented in presence in the 3rd day of the conference.
    • Artworks and Posters to be presented with a virtual or in-presence presentation.

    What is Generative Art
    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 Product Design GA performs the relation between intelligent industrial production and advanced design ideas of new naturality.
    In In Visual Art, Literature and Music GA opens a new era of reproducibility of artworks. From clone to unique and un-repeatable sequence of possible final results.
    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 last years' experience, 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.

    Generative Art is the idea realized as a genetic code of artificial events, as the construction of dynamic complex systems able to generate endless variations. It is a author's Generative AI.
    Each Generative Project is a concept-software that works producing unique and non-repeatable events, like music, images, or 3D Objects, as possible and manifold expressions of the generating idea strongly recognizable as a vision belonging to an artist/designer/musician/architect/mathematician. The generative Idea / human-creative-act makes an unpredictable, amazing, and endless expansion of human creativity. We can create species of events with a recognizable identity, following our vision. Computers are simply tools for storage in memory and execution.
    This approach opens a new era in Art, Design, and Composition: the challenge is a new naturalness of the artificial event as a mirror of Nature. Variations, like in Bach music, are the best strong communication of the Idea. Once more man emulates Nature, as in the act of making art.
    This approach suddenly opened the possibility to rediscover possible fields of human creativity that would be unthinkable without computer tools. If these tools, at the beginning of the computer era, seemed to extinguish human creativity, today, with the generative approach, directly operates on codes of Harmony and codes of Identity. They become tools that open new fields and enhance our understanding of creativity as an indissoluble synthesis between art and science.
    After two hundred years of the old industrial era of necessarily cloned objects, music, architectures, communications the one-of-a-kind object becomes an essential answer to emergent contemporary aesthetical needs.
