Can artistic practice maintain its criticality towards AI despite its aesthetic and technological genrefication? What role does the proliferation of AI as an artistic genre play in upholding common narratives of technological advancement straight out of Big Tech's marketing playbook? How does the commercialization of digital artistic practices through cryptocurrencies and NFTs drive AI-generated art? What role does curation play in the genrefication of AI and its associated narratives? generated art?
